John Kani’s play, "Kunene and the King", has become the latest production to be put on hold amid lockdown measures to prevent the worldwide spread of Covid-19.
London, the Prime Minister has closed all theatres public gatherings pubs restaurants football and sports to halt the spread of this virus. So my play has closed in London. We were only left with two weeks to go anyway. Thank you to all who supported us. What run!!🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

The cancellation of Kunene and the King follows a long list of other productions and concerts either postponed or cancelled around the world.
