Woza Albert!

By Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema and Barney Simon

Woza Albert!

Jesus has come back to earth, and has chosen to do so in South Africa – during the apartheid era. The black population is treated as second class citizens. Jesus, or Morena as he is called, preaches justice and peace – messages that do not go home with the white, Christian power elite. And it doesn’t help that Morena is black. The power elite’s answer? Atombomba him!

Woza Albert! is a political satire that was first played in 1981 at The Market Theater in Johannesburg. In Woza Albert! figures several real people like Nelson Mandela and Albert Luthuli. Luthuli was president of the ANC from 1952 and received the Nobel Peace Prize for his fight against apartheid in 1960. Woza Albert! just means “Get up Albert!” The title has been seen as a call to wake more black leaders in the fight against apartheid.

The show is played in Swedish, Xhosa and English.

The play is performed with permission from The Market Theater and with the support of the Cultural Council, the Stockholm Region and the Stockholm City Administration.

The Scandinavian premiere has already sold out! Yay! Click here for ticket information.
