Crepuscule is a real-life tale of romance. Based on the life of Can Themba, the Drum magazine writer and apartheid rebel who died in Swaziland in 1968, Crepuscule is believed to be an interpretation of Themba’s actual love affair with a white woman by the name of Jean Hart during the 1950s, in a time when such relations were considered taboo. It is described as a story about human connection and the search for freedom and humanity in a world that sought to deny it. The play is directed by Khayelihle Dom Gumede, who won Best Director for his vivid interpretation of the story at last year’s Naledi Awards. The production also received six Naledi nominations!
