Developed through the Royal Court’s new writing project in South Africa and co-produced with Johannesburg’s Market Theatre, I See You tells the true story of a young student in the post-Apartheid epoch.

After dark, Ben meets friend Skinn for a night out. But the party is interrupted by police, and Ben is accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Officer Buthelezi, a former freedom fighter who can’t let go of his experiences, confronts Ben, who is entirely unaware of his own history.

Based on a real encounter, and featuring the directorial debut of Olivier Award-winning actor Noma Dumezweni, I See You highlights the struggles of a new generation of South Africans in light of their country’s traumatised past.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
