One of the most powerful plays to come out of South Africa in the past 10 years. Tshepang is a portrayal of a town cut off from its own heart by poverty. Lara Foot Newton’s haunting and uplifting masterpiece of redemption is based in part on the true story of the rape of a nine-month-old baby -the consequences of which are still resonating today. (
