On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Jade Bowers about Black.
Based on CA Davids’ 2014 novel ‘The Blacks of Cape Town’, Gold Standard Bank Ovation Award-winning writer/director Penny Youngleson has written an adaptation for stage which intricately balances the poetry and pain of discovery, of unpacking history and the drama of family politics. It will see accomplished actress Patel tackling her first one-hander, under the directorial hand of Bowers, and with musical composition and accompaniment by Daniel Geddes. Choosing, as always, to highlight stories which are not part of the mainstream cannon, Bowers considers: “At this important moment in our country’s history, how do we as South Africans – with our multitude of cultures and lived experiences – look at our past to understand our present and future.”
