    A timely and timeless play exploring the pressing issues of social injustice

    Ishmael has lived on Erde estate his entire life. There is nothing glamorous about Erde; when things, and people, are broken, they remain so. 


    Despite his surroundings, Ishmael believes that one day he will become a renowned musician, taking him, and his mum, as far away from Erde as possible.


    However, when a black resident from Erde is unlawfully killed by the police, an uprising begins and the worth, and weight, of black lives is called into question.


    As tensions run high, and the community cries for a saviour, Ishmael is forced to decide whether he will set aside his music dreams or stand up for his community. 


    A timely and timeless play, #Jumala explores the pressing issue of social injustice, responding to the question asked by communities all around the world: do black lives matter?
