    Works and Ideas in progress ‘hatched’ at the Albany.


    The new show tells of legendary Mali king Sundiata Keita’s coming of age as a leader and how he grows in skills and wisdom travelling in exile with his family across Ghana, Méma and Sosso. 


    Sundiata's triumphant return to the throne of Mali unites kingdoms and fulfills the prophecy of great leadership that gave rise to his birth, a prophecy told in song and story by generations of West African griots to this day. It is a stand-alone sequel to the well-loved, The Old Woman, the Buffalo and Lion of Manding.



    This event takes place at Canada Water Theatre.
