Created by Lucky Simayela, Nlungisi Mkhize and Vumani Khumalo, and directed by Simayela, Just Don’t is an Ekhaya Multi Arts Centre project based on real life experiences. A group of prisoners follow the journey of Zesu, a young boy from a well-off family, who commits a petty crime stealing a cell phone as a birthday gift for his girlfriend. He lands in jail and the audience is taken on a thought-provoking journey of Zasu’s experiences during his time in prison. This powerful crime-stop piece drives home the question: ‘Is crime worth it?’
