Having been watched by more than 100000 people within 22 weeks and performed to full houses in London's West End, John Kani's stage attraction Nothing But the Truth is now headed to the Market Theatre.

It opens on Thursday and runs until June 14.

After its run at the Market Theatre, the show will go to the State Theatre in Pretoria, where Kani will perform for the last time on the show, producers of the play have confirmed.

Although it is not known who will take over Kani's lead role, Sowetan understands that he prefers either Rapulana Seiphemo or Kenneth Nkosi.

"This will be the final role for me as an actor in the production, and as to who will take over from me will depend on the directors and theatre producers," Kani told Sowetan yesterday.

"I am very excited by the reception we got from the audiences in the US and Britain," he said.

Written by Kani and directed by Janice Honeyman, the play has been hailed as a contemporary South African classic.

It has been published by Wits University Press and made into an English additional language setwork.

Nothing But The Truth has toured extensively both locally and abroad.It has won five Naledi Theatre Awards and three Fleur du Cap Awards.

The play revolves around the death of an estranged brother, forcing the ageing librarian Sipho Makaya (Kani), along with his daughter and the niece he has never met, to confront the betrayals, jealousies and animosities of the past.

Leleti Khumalo and Welile Thembe complete the cast.
