The theatrical production "The diary of madness" which was scheduled to run from the 14th to the 18th of March has been cancelled. It is very unfortunate for those that had missed the act last year. It is sad to note how theatre is not receiving it's much deserved support and recognition. The award winning Philani Nyoni affectionately known as PAN has relentlessly pushed the art despite the impenetrable thick airs that envelopes theatre .

In a press release he said

"It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform the general public and all the fans in Harare who were looking forward to watching The Diary of Madness which had been scheduled for this week at Theatre in The Park that the run has been cancelled.
This is a result of the host failing to give certain guarantees to Naughty by Nature, the production company behind our show pertaining to the cast (me) and crew's wellbeing during our stay. While I applaud my representation for their vigilance and concern for the talent, I deplore the host's inability to satisfy a commitment that has been about a month in negotiation.
This reinforces my conviction that while our national conditions; cultural, economic and political might not be ideal for what we do, we, not only as artists but as civilians and business people still have a lot to do with our misery.
Negotiations are underway with other stakeholders in the industry to bring the show to the Sunshine City again for an experience that is both rewarding and fulfilling to all parties involved.
On behalf of the Producer (Naughty by Nature), the director (TH Moyo) and myself, (writer and sole actor), I convey most sincere apologies."
