Creative Hub Rehearsed Readings - And the Girls in Their Sunday Dresses by Zakes Mda
Available to watch from 1 Mar 2021 12:00 until 1 Apr 2021 12:00
An online rehearsed reading of the Zakes Mda play, And the Girls in their Sunday Dresses.
'A dynamic two-hander is taking on the topic of inequalities and state bureaucracy as a powerful tool of oppression. In the tenacious shadow of apartheid, the possibility of change in South Africa remains suffocated by corruption, which is facilitated by an insidious network of red-tape and inefficiency. The gulf between ostensive and actual parity between white and black, and the suffering which persists among the country’s poorest inhabitants are the themes of Zakes Mda’s witty and astute 1988 play, and they remain outrageously pertinent today.'
This production will be brought to light through the captivating performances of our talented cast through a pandemic-safe virtual stream.
This reading is a part of Utopia Theatre's Creative Hub, aimed at creating a sustainable talent pool and enabling the strengthening of black African communities within the Arts.
