Kunene and the King, a Royal Shakespeare Company co-production with The Fugard Theatre, is now playing in the West End following its premiere in Stratford-upon-Avon and a sold-out run in Cape Town last year. Don't miss your chance to catch South African actor, activist and playwright John Kani's highly-acclaimed play, directed by Janice Honeyman, as it plays in London for a strictly limited run.

Twenty-five years since the first post-apartheid democratic elections, two men from contrasting walks of life are thrust together to reflect on a quarter century of change. Antony Sher and John Kani deliver 'extraordinary performances' (Daily Telegraph) as celebrated classical actor Jack Morris and his at-home nurse Lunga Kunene in this poignant and moving two-hander.
