December is the most wonderful time of the year, with festivities to promote social cohesion taking place across the world, Ekurhuleni included.

As such, the city will join in on the fun by hosting exhilarating home-brewed theatre production by world renowned and budding thespians from in and around the city.

To kick-start such activities, as of the 28th November until 10th December 2023, the Dumisani Masilela Theatre in Germiston, will be a hive of activities, showcasing productions such as the Gibson Khente’s “How Long Mfowethu”. There will also be double bills with a variety of pieces from different producers as well as Christmas carols to keep theatre lovers on the urge of their seats.
