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.

We look forward to these performances by South Sudan Theatre Company which I am sure will open the eyes of the British audience not only to a fresh and original view of the play but also to the rich culture of South Sudan.
