Addressing the issues John Kani said, “It is with great sadness that I have to announce I will be stepping down from the role of Troy Maxon in August Wilson’s Fences. It is a role I have long dreamed of playing.

“However, a bout of vertigo and the concurrent imbalance it causes is precluding me from stepping on stage in this demanding role.
