AND the Girls in Their Sunday Dresses 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 government rice.

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 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 adapted from the short story by Zakes Mda. It is directed by BreeH Cele, and performed by Nompilo Jili and Pertunia Msani. This modern classic will be staged at the Hexagon StudioTheatre (UKZN), from 21 to 23 April at 7pm. Tickets are R50 each at the door.
