In the tenacious shadow of apartheid, the possibility of change in South Africa remains suffocated by corruption, facilitated by an insidious network of red tape and inefficiency.

The gulf between ostensive and actual parity between white and black, and the suffering which persists among the country’s poorest inhabitants are the themes of Zakes Mda’s witty and astute 1988 play, and they remain outrageously pertinent today. Utopia Theatre presented a rehearsed reading of And the Girls in Their Sunday Dresses during lockdown earlier this year.

NEED TO KNOW: And the Girls in Their Sunday Dresses by Zakes Mda is at Arcola Theatre from 29 Sept – 2 Oct 2021
