Antony Sher and John Kani in The Tempest
Hugely exciting press release from the RSC today!
For those who don’t have time to follow links, the RSC are collaborating with the Baxter Theatre company on a new production of The Tempest starring Anthony Sher as Prospero and John Kani as Caliban. It’s opening at the Baxter’s home in South Africa then transferring to the Courtyard in February.
The mind boggles, but even for the chance to see two legendary actors it should be interesting.

”…filled with African ritual, music and dance, will feature a totally South African cast and will be created by three of South Africa’s foremost theatrical talents.”
If this is as good as the Indian Dream, then we really are in for a treat. I wonder if Kani will be giving Caliban any Xhosa clicks like he did his Claudius in the Baxter’s Hamlet?
