The Robben Island Bible at South Africa House, April 2014


Candice Vetter of CHV TV has compiled a video of the surprise reading of the Robben Island Bible, performed by South African born actor Jack Klaff and British actor, Jeffrey Kissoon, the reading was performed at South Africa House for the first time in celebration of the 20th anniversary of democracy and it was a profound moment for all in attendance to witness it in the building that was once seen as a bastion of the apartheid rĂ©gime that is now a symbol of freedom and hope. The Robben Island Bible is a play based on selected text from South African Sonny Venkatrathnam's copy of ‘The Complete Works of William Shakespeare’ & interviews with former political prisoners held on this island prison.
