Belvoir is excited to bring Mandela Mathia’s extraordinary autobiographical solo show Lose to Win to the stage from 25 April to 19 May 2024.

Through spoken word, song and comedy Mandela (The Cherry Orchard) extends a heartfelt invitation for audiences to join him on his remarkable journey from South Sudan to Egypt and finally all the way to Belvoir St.

Fleeing his war-torn home as a child, Mandela spent many years journeying, searching, and eventually finding his way to the stage. This is a joyful, poignant performance, straight from the man who lived it.

A celebration of the South Sudanese community, of resilience, and the power of imagination, Lose to Win is an astonishing modern Australian story.
