    Next Sunday
    Date: 18 – 27 April 2014
    Venue: Momentum Theatre
    Synopsis: This is a play about how 'damage' is handed down from generation to generation. A daughter (Matlakala) has a mother who is an addict and finds herself falling under the same dark cloud as her mother while trying to raise her own daughter Zazi. With the two pivotal women in Zazi's life crumbling under what life has to offer who will save her? Will the ailing and dying grandmother be the saviour? Or are all three generations doomed by some unknown curse? 'Next Sunday' was the winner of the Market Theatre Laboratory's Zwakala Festival and was given a full professional season there. Interesting theatre from a young cast and a young director. Written and directed by Godfrey Thobejane

    Date: 8 - 18 May 2014
    Venue: Momentum Theatre
    Synopsis: A young woman called Anna suddenly gives voice to her repressed childhood pain and tells us a horrible story of the things her step father did to her as a child. We realise that through her finally speaking about this she achieves some sort of catharsis and closure. This is a story about the pain that often cripples us as human beings, but it is also about healing and the human capacity to forgive.

    Date: 16 May - 8 June 2014
    Venue: Arena Theatre
    Synopsis: A research project about food security across the world, encompassing theatre companies from varied countries such as Brazil, Kenya, Belgium, Germany, India and South Africa. The South African State Theatre's research partner is the Cape Town branch of the German institution the Heinrich Boll Stiftung. The idea of the project as first envisaged by the Hamburg Schauspielhaus is to bring theatre companies from across the world together and share their research about food security in their respective countries with each other at a conference which took place in Hamburg in December 2013. The next step is for all the participating countries/companies to develop a theatre production based on the shared research. These productions will then be streamed online to all the participating countries.
