The fact that ten gay-themed plays written by South African playwrights since 1994 can be collected in a two-volume anthology (S.A. Gay Plays 1 and 2) tells you something about the burgeoning of gay plays that took place in the wake of the 1996 South African Constitution, the first in the world to outlaw discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. These plays serve to illuminate that brave legislative act of conferring dignity.
Plays included: Robert Colman: Your Loving Simon • Peter Krummeck: iVirgin Boy • Amy Jephta: Other People’s Lives • Nicholas Spagnoletti: Special Thanks to Guests from Afar • Pfarelo N.: Chomi
