In this script-in-hand performance, we find ourselves in the South Africa of the mid-1960’s.
Apartheid is firmly established and all-pervasive and for the non-whites – in the racial parlance of the time – life is a cycle of suppression, poverty, class division and racism.
It is in this world that we meet two Cape Coloureds – Boesman and Lena – journeying aimlessly through the Eastern Cape; an itinerant homeless couple fleeing from yet another eviction.
Victims of an oppressive regime, their seemingly futile and aimless lives are compounded by their fragile humanity and their complex and disturbing relationship.
It is directed by Arnold Phillips.
