Les Blancs

Les Blancs

- Olivier Theatre, National

Preis ab € 39.40

An African country teeters on the edge of civil war. A society prepares to drive out its colonial present and claim an independent future. Racial tensions boil over.

Tshembe, returned home from England for his father’s funeral, finds himself in the eye of the storm. A family and a nation fall apart under the pressure to determine their own identity as this brave, illuminating and powerful play confronts the hope and tragedy of revolution.

Written eleven years after A Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry’s final drama is an unknown masterpiece of the American stage and a highly theatrical search for the soul of post-colonial Africa.

Les Blancs is the National Theatre debut of the  multi-award-winning Yaël Farber whose productions include The Crucible (Old Vic) and the internationally acclaimed Mies Julie and Nirbhaya.


‘Incredibly moving. Towering, magnificent.’ New York Times, on the original production
