How Stories Began


2015©maryatta wegerif //www.maryattawegerif.comJungle Theatre Company in partnership with the Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign has developed a new production called How Stories Began based on the retelling of this traditional Zulu folktale by local author Wendy Hartmann.

How Stories Began is set in ancient times on the Wild Coast, before people knew how to tell stories. Manzandaba and Zenzele, a married couple, are two of the first people. They go on an adventure in search of stories that lead to magical creatures under the ocean……. Ntombifuthi Mkhasibe and Vincent Meyburgh bring the story to life in English and isiXhosa with African music, comical characters and masks designed by artist Niel Jonker.

How Stories Began is 45 minutes in duration and suitable for children aged 4 and up (grades R to 3). An accompanying workshop is also available.

So many roles and only two actors.” Finn – Constantia Waldorf
