The human spirit that conquered apartheid still lives.

An award-winning play about two political prisoners in South Africa… whose story lives on in America’s prisons today.

1973: Robben Island. The notorious prison that held Nelson Mandela is in full operation. Those who resist the racist policies of apartheid face hard labor and punishment at the hands of the guards. And in the very heart of this turmoil, John and Winston decide to put on a play. The Island tells the amazing story of two prisoners who find their voice in the Greek tragedy Antigone. Through drumming and dance, Allentown Public Theatre brings their legacy to present-day America – where racial tensions and corrupt prison systems are far from gone.
