The Plays


The Playground by Beverly Naidoo


"…it floats on a haunting, echoing raft of traditional South African harmonies that make watching it a joyful experience as well as a thought-provoking one…" Time Out Critics' Choice – Pick of the Year


Taxi by Sibusiso Mamba: Edinburgh fringe first winner


"a superbly written and produced play… A fine piece of work that's refreshingly free of cliches." Daily Mail, Pick of the Week


Green Man Flashing by Mike Van Graan


"…This finely crafted drama tears at the heart and soul of our democracy, and rips at the underbelly of corruption and political power through its astute writing…" Star Tonight


Rejoice by James Whylie


"… the cruellest irony of all is left until the end… the same one which has spelled the death of Rejoice… And millions more." Friends of BBC Radio 3


What the Water Gave Me by Rehane Abrahams


"tales that retrieve ancient magics and reveal contemporary terrors…" Cape Times


To House by Ashwin Singh: Finalist in the 2003 PANSA (Performing Arts Network of SA) Festival of Reading of New Writing (the country's foremost playwriting contest)


"To House is an important piece of theatre; in it people voice opinions that are uncomfortable and edgy. The cathartic and therapeutic value of hearing these things said aloud in a public place is part of our essential healing process and proves, once again, that art has the ability to go where angels fear to tread." Daily News, Durban
