Carolina Actors Studio Theatre remembers the late Nelson Mandela in its staging of Sizwe Bansi is Dead, a play written about apartheid. That is, after all, the very thing Mandela worked to abolish. First premiering in 1972, the production brings to light the drastic measures one must take to survive the regime conditions in South Africa. In the show, we meet Sizwe Bansi, who struggles to find a work permit in order to provide for himself and his family. After stumbling upon a dead man with a valid permit, Bansi is faced with the difficult choice of forever altering his identity. (Anita Overcash)
