Until its destruction by government decree in the mid-1950s, Sophiatown was the ‘Chicago of South Africa’, a vibrant community that produced not only gangsters and shebeen queens, but leading journalists, writers, musicians and politicians. This play brings to life the characters, lifestyle, creativity and thinking that gave urban African culture its rhythm and style.
