The premier of the new play by Raisedon Baya and Memory Kumbota, The Taking, scheduled for November 22 during the coming Intwasa Extra has been postponed to the second week of December, the organisers said yesterday.
The postponement has been necessitated by the non-availability of one of the cast members, Zenzo Nyathi, who suddenly got tied up in Mozambique and Ghana with another project.
Nyathi will be away for about three weeks until December 6.
“The exact new dates will be announced soon,” said Intwasa director Baya in a statement.
“Any inconvenience is sincerely regretted.
“The producers of the play promise the premier of the new play will take place as soon as Nyathi is available.
However, Baya said the Intwasa Extra would continue.
