On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Maude Sandham about Tracks on stage soon at the WITS So Solo Festival.
In this one-woman play, commisioned by the WITS So Solo Festival, Maude Sandham tracks the fragments of her family’s history, retelling stories of her grandfather who grew up in pre-apartheid Fordsburg before moving to a neighbourhood of predominantly white railway families. Tracks uncovers the familiar stories we tell to fill the gaps in the documentation printed in the South African history books.
This performance takes place as part of Wits Theatre’s So Solo festival, a celebration of the one-man show featuring a dozen different South African plays. Shows are timed in such a way that it is possible to catch several performances back-to-back in one day.
