Silent Voice at the Baxter in Cape Town

Aubrey Sekhabi's Silent Voice is showing at the Baxter after a successful run at the Edinburgh festival. The play is about a botched robbery that turns into murder against the background of modern-day life in South Africa.

Sekhabi, who is the artistic director at the South African State Theatre in Pretoria, is one of South Africa's top playwrights and directors. Among his most recent works are Hunger, real-life stories about hungry people in South African's urban communities, and his musical Marikana about the miners' strike that resulted in the deaths of 44 striking mine workers in 2012, which was featured at the 2014 Grahamstown festival.

Sekhabi is sometimes referred to as the Quentin Tarantino of township theatre.
