Ovation Award, National Arts Festival 2013 Festival Playwright, Mike van Graan, at the National Arts Festival 2013
The play confronts many of the questions dealing with identity, and with inter-racial relationships in contemporary South Africa. A white woman brings up the born-free black girl in Cape Town suburbia – in the process alienating her from the rest of her township family.

‘… a highly commendable addition to Van Graan’s highly impressive body of work.’ – Peter Feldman, Citizen
