Welcome to Gomora, once a peaceful town but now a paradise for gangsters and rapists. With the people of the town fed up with an incompetent police force, a group of vigilantes try to take justice into their own hands. Led by a former pastor who is seeking revenge for his wife’s death, they have risen to restore justice and order in town.

Things soon take a turn for the worse, as it becomes evident that there is no mob justice without bloodshed. With the death toll rising, the township is divided into two groups: those who are for the vigilantes and those against. Yet no one dares speak; until a young man takes it upon himself to stand against the mob.

Written and directed by JC Zondi, Welcome to Gomora is a project for Drama and Performance Studies students at UKZN in Pietermaritzburg and is performed with energy and vitality, with vibrant new talent heralding a new generation of performers.

The production runs in the Hexagon Studio Theatre on the UKZN campus in Pietermaritzburg from April 22 to 25 at 18h00. Tickets R40 (R25 concession) available at the door only. For more information email:
