(Nompilo Jili & Pertunia Msani)

Coming to theHex Studio Theatre in Pietermaritzburg, is And The Girls In Their Sunday Dresses by Zakes Mda. This is a humorous story of two characters, The Woman and The Lady - one a retired prostitute fallen on hard times, the other a domestic worker - waiting in line to buy subsidised rice from a government office.

The women strike up an unlikely relationship: one has a chair; the other some food. "All we need is patience and our turn will come," says one. As they wait to be served, they share stories of heartbreak, and they find they have more in common than initially meets the eye.

This production by StageFront Productions of And the Girls in Their Sunday Dresses is directed by BreeH Cele, and performed by Nompilo Jili and Pertunia Msani.

And The Girls In Their Sunday Dresses has performances from April 21 to 23 at 19h00 at the Hexagon Studio Theatre on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus. Tickets R50 at the door.
