Mamlambo

Theatre / Princess Alice

The once powerful Mbutha nation is confronted with mysterious deaths. The nation has been living under the ancient prophecy that “one day the world will come to an end”. There is confusion whether the prophesied ending has come. In the quest to find answers, the leadership of the king (King Langa) faces a difficult test of time. In foreign lands, unexpected conflict breaks out between men and women. The consequences of the conflict are controversial and deadly. Customary law, tradition, beliefs and the culture of the nation are challenged. Can King Langa save his nation? It is yet to be seen.
