She Is King

  •   Gersh Kgamedi
  •   South Africa


Khanyisile, a talented young woman, leaves her rural village for the big city to become a star and lands a coveted role in a musical play about the Zulu Queen Mkabayi. But will she be able to keep up with her more experienced castmates, avoid the jealous machinations of the veteran leading lady, and survive the punishing rehearsal schedule? This winning musical drama is a joyous celebration of Zulu culture in a glossy contemporary setting, showing off Johannesburg, South Africa as the “Broadway of Africa.”


Co-presented by the South African Consulate General in Chicago
