A tremendous new play that effortlessly offers the opportunity to travel back to a time when shoulder pads were considered fashionable, and the state of emergency was at the tip of everyone’s tongue. The era when the country’s great leader walked down the dusty streets of South Africa for the first time in decades. Casta Diva Vissi d’Arte Theatre heartily brings She Wept Colour.
Set in Gelvandale, Port Elizabeth in 1990, She Wept Colour is a story about four sisters who are brought together by tragedy – their father’s passing. Rage! Sadness! Secrets! Envy! Isolation! One’s true colours come out during funerals when emotions are high; and this play is a mirror of what happens when untold truths come to light. Add to that hair and skin colour politics and a recipe for disaster is guaranteed. Join the Johnson family as their story unfolds in a riveting, unexpected manner.
Directed by exciting new playwright, Zanele Nondzimba, and Ntombi Ntanzi with a captivating cast; starring Merlyn Dunn, Tracy Daniels, Miquel Brookstein and Iefke Worst. Born in Port Elizabeth, Nondzimba started writing short stories from the age of ten and has written and had published articles and short stories for South African newspapers and magazines – including her debut novel, From the First Kiss.
She Wept Colour will be showing at the beautiful Casta Diva Vissi d’Arte Theatre, located in the City of Tshwane along the slopes of the magnificent Magalies Mountains, on the 22nd and 23rd of July 2016 at 19h00.
Pre-booked tickets are available online from Quicket at R80, or at the door for R100.
