In the end, we must all move on. Well. Sort of.

Eliot Moleba premiers his new play, The Man In The Green Jacket, taking place at the Joburg Theatre (, from the 23rd – 27th October, 2013, and the production will feature an exceptional cast of Pusetso Thibedi and Tau Maserumule.

Written, in part, as a response to the Marikana massacre, the play asks whether there can be growth through tragedy. It also poses questions of our responsibility, as a society, in the aftermath of Marikana, especially the continuing challenges that face the affected families and children.

“For its often refreshing originality, its successful subtleties of theme and character

and its determination to provoke discussion rather

than violence; I think The Man in the Green Jacket

is a must see play.”

– Maurice Posniak

The play is promoting awareness nationally about the impact of the Marikana massacre on the families left behind. In partnership with Education Africa, we’ve also founded The Marikana Scholarship Fund to collect donations that will go to the educational needs of the affected children. This scholarship fund is founded on the belief that unless something is done to secure these children’s future, the perpetual cycle of illiteracy and unemployment will continue to rise.
