The Market Theatre, founded in Johannesburg in 1976 by Mannie Manim and the late Barney Simon, was constructed out of Johannesburg's Indian Fruit Market - built in 1913. The theatre went on to become internationally renowned as South Africa's "Theatre of the Struggle." The Market Theatre challenged the apartheid regime, armed with little more than the conviction that culture can change society. The strength and truth of that conviction was acknowledged in 1995 when the theatre received the American Jujamcyn Award. During the past three decades, the Market Theatre has evolved into a cultural complex for theatre, music, dance, and the allied arts. Today, the Market Theatre remains at the forefront of South African theatre, actively encouraging new works that continue to reach international stages.
