Suddenly The Storm:
Paul Slabolepszy’s new play set in contemporary South Africa poses the question of whether the wounds of the past can ever really be healed. The play is set in the present day in Joburg’s East Rand at the home of an ageing, former police officer and his much younger wife. Namhla Gumede a former exile from Soweto born on 16 June, 1976 arrives at their home seeking answers to questions that have remained buried for 40 years. What begins as a smouldering dark comedy turns suddenly into a roller-coaster ride of startling revelations, rage and recrimination. Suddenly the Storm runs at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square until 19 November 2016.
