The show documents the life of #miriammakeba , her music,life & her struggle against apatite.
It’s heartening to be here in #southafrica with a such truly diverse cast performing together, this was an absolute impossibility when I started my career in #theatre in the #london #westend something we fought hard in the eighties to achieve in #londontheatreland.

This production represents for me absolutely what the campaign against apatite in #thelondonwestend #theatre during the eighties & nineties was about, -the boycotts, the 24hr vigil at the #southafricanembassy, the benefit concerts all contributed.
my sense of awe at the power of the performance of these young people’s performance humbles me. #unity #onelove #freedom
