The System is a multi-award winning theatre production. 
The show has performed outside South Africa for the past four years. It has won the Standard Bank Ovation Award and Ishashalazi Best Director and Best Writer awards. In 2013, the show entered into the biggest arts gathering globally, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, proving yet again that it is a show to be reckoned with, by receiving 5 stars reviews from Broadway Baby, Fringe Review and No Borders.  
The System is a physical expression theatre show, telling a story of poverty, injustice, compassion, betrayal, friendship and values within modern day South Africa. Based on the life experiences of three young South African males. The System charts the events leading to the men’s daring escape from prison, following their unusual dramatic and unconnected incarcerations, their subsequent escape, and their journey thereafter. The System provides the audience with modern entertainment; it is at the same time, a reflection of contemporary stories of present day South Africa.
Written by Kgosana Thekwana
Directed by Seiphemo Motswiri
