In the world premiere of Florence, a one-person play directed by Greg Homann and starring Leila Henriques, playwright Myer Taub playfully experiments with time, place, language, and form to explore our contemporary moment. A disgruntled actress meets over lunch in a fancy restaurant with a playwright about the new work he has written that places Florence Phillips as a ghost at the Joubert Park fence outside the Johannesburg Art Gallery. While considering whether she will play the role, the actress imagines what it would mean to portray a dead white colonial figure today whose legacy and value is both contested and forgotten.
