Woza Albert!is based on one dazzlingly simple idea - that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ should take place in present-day South Africa. This brilliant two-man show from the Market Theatre, Johannesburg, took the Edinburgh Festival then London by storm in September 1982, playing to standing ovations every night. It was also seen in Berlin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia and twice on BBC TV. 'A satire played with devastating energy in a brilliantly witty staging.' Guardian 'The most politically potent show ever staged in South Africa.' Observer This edition contains a new introduction by Yvette Hutchison
