Renowned as South Africa’s “Theatre of struggle”, The Market Theatre, founded in Johannesburg in 1976 was constructed out of Johannesburg’s Indian Fruit Market. This proudly South African theatre brings award-winning excellence to its people by creating an authentic South African cultural experience which is committed to providing the highest level of artistic excellence in all aspects of the performing and visual arts. The Theatre can be found in Newtown, where historically it challenged the apartheid regime, armed with little more than the conviction that culture can change society. Its twenty-one international and over three hundred South African theatre awards bears eloquent testimony to the courage and artistic quality of its work.
