Matters of the Heart

Produced by Dinganga Theatre Creations

Synopsis: The play follows a woman taxi driver in Soweto during the course of a single day as she and her passengers juggle jobs and family responsibilities, struggle to cope with unemployment and rising prices, and confront the prejudices that lead to discrimination and attacks against gays and asylum seekers. The focus is on women as they strive to define their identities in the new South Africa. The production makes use of physical theatre and dance, and there's plenty of humour leavening the serious subject matter.
