Mwana

By Tawona Sitholé. An Ankur Productions review.

THE scene is a house in Harare where preparations are nearing completion for a wedding. The excitement is all the more intense because of the return of Mwana, the groom's brother, just off the plane from Glasgow in the company of Kirsten, his Scottish girlfriend. Mwana is the family's golden boy, the son destined to join his father's medical practice when his graduation papers come through.

RoadKill

By Cora Bissett. An Ankur review.

MORE effective is Roadkill, if only because it takes the audience into just the kind of everyday flat where trafficked women are forced to sell their bodies, lending the production a grim authenticity. Cora Bissett's production, enhanced by chilling commentaries taken from websites in which men rate the women they have had sex with, explores the way one woman can end up exploiting another for her own survival and how the men, in a number of roles played by John Kazek, exert their cruel control. It is not edifying, but it is certainly unsettling.

HEER Ranjha has survived since the 15th century because it is a tale of archetypal dimensions. Popularised in 1766 by the Punjabi poet Waris Shah, it is a tragic love story in which the beautiful Heer plays Juliet to Ranjha's roaming Romeo.
