Acclaimed playwright Mike van Graan’s new play, When Swallows Cry, interweaves three powerful and hard-hitting stories about experiences of African migrants - a Somalian businessman in a US immigration office, a Canadian teacher held ransom in central Africa, two Zimbabweans detained in an Australian detention centre. Once force to “migrate” as slaves, Africans are now amont the world’s least attractive migrants in the wealthy economies of the world. Van Graan’s stories are skilfully directed by Lesedi Job and enacted by a stellar Cape Town cast, Mbulelo Grootboom, Martin Kintu and Kai Luke Brümmer.
