About This Show

In 2001, devastating news of the rape of a nine-month-old child drew the national and world media to a small South African town – a community cut off by poverty from its own heart. This play is motivated by that news report and twenty thousand true stories that come forth every year. The town and its characters are fictional.

In Tshepang, Ruth, the mother of baby Tshepang, has not uttered a word in three years. Simon comes forward to protect her, and from the ashes of tragedy a most unusual tale of hope and love emerges. Tshepang is a powerful story told with humour and heartbreak. Rather than finding simple answers, the play draws the viewer into the complexities and contradictions that surround these events.
