Sizwe Banzi Is Dead

Sizwe Banzi Is Dead


Soulpepper has suspended the remainder of its announced season, including all upcoming productions, and events through to August, 2020. Read the full statement here.

Ticket holders have been contacted directly by email with instructions on how to make arrangements - learn more.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Box Office via email:  or by phone: 416-866-8666. We anticipate a high volume of calls so thank you for your patience.

We are truly heartbroken at the loss of these productions, and thank all the artists, designers, and technicians that worked so hard to bring these stories to life. We are exploring a variety of scenarios with the hopes that there may be future opportunities to celebrate their work. We are assessing ways we can support the artists, technicians and front of house teams that will be impacted by these closures.

What is your name worth? In apartheid-era South Africa, the only way for Banzi to survive is to seize opportunities and fake his own death. From one of the world’s great playwrights Athol Fugard (‘Master Harold’…and the Boys), comes a soaring and personal comedy of identity, memory, and the resilience of the human spirit.
