A children’s theatre production, The Twins Get Lost educates and reminds children about magical powers instilled in the meaning of their names. It is now showing until 18 October 2019 at the South African State Theatre.
The play is an adaptation of an old African folktale devised by Galeboe Moabi, who is assisted by Nompumelelo Skhosana and Rinnet Sekgobela, in collaboration with a cast comprising: Anele Magana, Rinnet Sekgobela, Kagiso Hlabane, Nonkululeko Moloi, Olga Ramphalile, Koketso Sekatane, Brandon Olifant and Nkululeko Mgenge.

The Twins Get Lost follows Lesedi and Bothlale, who are twins living with their mother in Thusanang village. Their mother always warned them about playing too far from home in fear that they might fall prey to wild animals. It seems their mother has always been right. One day, while out playing with their friends, the twins get amused by a butterfly fluttering around, they follow it until it disappears from their sight and they can’t find their friends too. The Twins Get Lost!
Wandering in the forest, frightened and alone, the duo encounters good and bad animals on their quest to return home. Their mother always taught them what their names meant and how they should make use them. Will the twins remember the meaning of their names and successfully return home? We wait to find out.
