In the wake of independence, a group of dramatists and cultural leaders have come together to form the South Sudan Theatre Company. The company works to promote innovative theatre that both celebrates and challenges South Sudan’s cultural heritage and artistic potential. Join us in supporting the company, and track a national identity in the making.

I very much look forward to seeing the work of this bold new company, and to seeing what they have to teach us about Shakespeare today.
I always deeply admired the commitment of the people of South Sudan to the celebration of your own culture and to international culture: I remember having many inspirational talks with your people about Shakespeare, even ‘footing’ through lands devastated by Khartoum’s scorched earth policy.
It’s a cause of great celebration that the world’s newest country is being given an opportunity to show their theatre in London. We should always remember that the only true form of diplomacy is culture.
