"TAAC to me is like reading an old comic book. It is read by a lot of people but feels like it was made just for you."

In a dystopian South Africa, even the superheroes are dysfunctional. When friends, colleagues and family come together to mourn and remember slain Superhero Eskombuso, we find out more about them too. Confession Sessions is hilarious, moving, and scarily familiar; an original, contemporary, mockumetary-style theatre piece.

NZLEE Productions Presents
Written by Ashraf Johaardien, Directed by Niquita Hartley and Performed by Ashalin Singh
R80 | R50 students
NZLEE Productions presents Ashalin Singh in Ashraf Johaardien’s award-winning play SALAAM STORIES directed by newcomer Niquita Hartley under the mentorship of Standard Bank Young Artist alumna and Naledi Award-winner Jade Bowers.
Johaardien’s iconic play which has been performed in London, New York, Amsterdam and all over South Africa skilfully weaves a tapestry of local myths and cultural stories into theatrical magic.
Funny, poetic and heart-wrenching, SALAAM STORIES is Johaardien’s deeply personal meditation on life, love and loss. Set against the historical background of the Cape slave trade and the Malay diaspora in South Africa, audiences are whipped out of their seats and across the Cape Flats to Robben Island – and then to and from Bombay – back in time, to the 17th century, when the Dutch were at war with the Portuguese. The 2019 revival of "Salaam Stories" is presented with support from the National Arts Council of South Africa.
