Finding Melo is a new show on at Joburg Theatre, written by Menzi Mkhwane, directed Mahlatsi Mokgonyana and Billy Langa and starring Mlungisi Mathe, reports the City Buzz.
It is a lighthearted, quirky one-man show based on the story of Melo, a young businessman in his late 20s.
The fun show was developed by the young South African thespian, Mkhwane, recipient of a Naledi Award for the play, A voice I cannot silence and the son of legendary South African theatre-maker Bheki Mkhwane.
He has staged another award-winning show, called The Secret Valley of Great kings at The Playhouse Theatre, for which he won numerous awards in Durban.
Finding Melo, set for the viewing of Joburg audiences, goes through an exciting journey of being a young visionary in the new South Africa and also what it truly means to find oneself in a diverse country.

The latest fare, Finding Melo, brings a very colourful collaboration in creativity and performance.
“We can’t wait to share this experience with you,” Mathe wrote to friends and fans on social media.
