The Drama and Performance Studies programme is proud to present the first of this year’s season of Post Graduate New Directors’ Plays.
‘When men are oppressed, it’s a tragedy. But when women are oppressed it’s tradition!’
For Women of Colour is based on the stories of four South African women who are facing some form of oppression by the community , employers and even family. Through the use of storytelling and music, the director and writer, Terece Swartz, explores the stories of these particular women and the different types of oppression they come up against. Through their stories the play also reveals how they learn to deal with their circumstances as black women living in today’s demanding society, and leaves us with the question “Can women indulge in freedom?”
