Kids of Amandla Street

The Kids of Amandla Street by South African Playwright Lereko Mfono brings to the stage the lively and prejudiced Amandla Street as seen through the eyes of four South African youth.  These youth want to change the world, live their fullest lives, and dream of all they can become. This comes in stark reality to the racism, fear, and potential violence that surrounds them and threatens to steal their dreams.  

The Kids of Amandla Street will be performed as Spinning Dot Theatre’s first ever Unity Play – coming actors from all ages and levels of the Spinning Dot Theatre family along with a invited community performers. Our performances will combine post show discussions of the play brought to you by the Neutral Zone S.E.E.D program, and we are thrilled to be inviting the playwright, Lereko Mfono to be an exciting guest to share in this work in 2018!
