Sophiatown

About

Sophiatown is a lively and memorable drama with music that is being revived with a new, young cast under the experienced eye of director Aubrey Sekhabi to delight today’s audiences with its timeless music.

Sophiatown came to be known as the ‘Chicago of South Africa’, and a place where shebeen queens, gangsters, politicians and black and white ‘Bohemians’ rubbed shoulders and traded drinks in a heady atmosphere fizzing with music, style, and rebellion.

This vibrant community produced some of South Africa’s most famous musicians, artists, writers, journalists, and politicians as urban African culture formed here during the repressive 1940s and 1950s.
