South Africa.

Be uplifted and inspired by this spellbinding musical theatre triumph.

Escaping the ravages of civil war, eight-year-old Asad is a street smart survivor. Hustling his way from a refugee camp to the shantytowns of Ethiopia, Asad sets his sights on the bright lights of South Africa. But the tough reality of this promised land sends our resilient hero on a whole new, perilous adventure.

Energised by the joyous sounds and swagger of one-of-a-kind South African company Isango Ensemble, working in collaboration with the UK’s Young Vic, A Man of Good Hope is a musical theatre spectacle pulsing with the most urgent humanitarian crisis facing the world today.

Critically acclaimed in London and New York, it’s a powerful and hopeful odyssey of forced migration, stunningly expressed by an electrifying cast of performers whose dynamic song and dance, accompanied by marimba and steeped in African tradition, will make your heart swell and your spine tingle.

Take an epic journey through Africa with this extraordinary true story, brought to life by the most irresistible music.
