The performance on August 1 of Mother to Mother which appears on the Playhouse Company’s South African Women’s Arts Festival will take place as a fundraiser for the Diakonia Council of Churches.

Poignant and powerful Mother to Mother comes to Durban as part of the SAWAF. The intimate portrayal of a mother struggling to come to terms with the actions of her son is written by Dr Sindiwe Magona and is billed as a deeply moving story of forgiveness and reconciliation. The production has toured widely - including to the Edinburg Festival, the Netherlands and UK. It explores how one unforgiving moment in an ordinary day has repercussions beyond the imaginable.

Performed by Thembi Mtshali Jones, adapted and directed by Janice Honeyman. Mother to Mother runs in the Playhouse Loft: from tomorrow (July 31) to August 3.

Booking for the Diakonia Council of Churches fundraiser can be made on 031 310 3500 (Switchboard). Bookings for the rest of the run through Computicket.
