Kunene and the King has been a special gift to me as a writer,” said playwright and actor Kani. “I wrote the play to deal with some questions I had within myself. And when I finished, I sent it to a friend of mine, Sir Anthony Sher at the Royal Shakespeare Company, because I had him in mind to play this wonderful character, Jack Morris (played by Michael Richard in this production).

“We opened at Stratford in April 2019. What a joy! What a celebration! We transferred to the Fugard Theatre for a few performances, and then we took the West End by storm.“

Kunene and the King is listed among the top 10 best plays produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 60 years.
