The award winning family drama, "Moeders en Dogters", was first published in 1983 and first staged in 1985. Set against the political instability of the 1976 Soweto student uprising, the play examines the lives of three daughters, their mother and domestic worker.
Reimagined for the bilingual Afrikaans 4th year students at CTDPS, with permission from the playwrite, Corlia Fourie, we have held onto the drama, let go of the realism somewhat... and set it in present day, October 2019.
The sudden death of the father, a well known Artist, Gert Cilliers - Smit, gathers the three sisters under one roof for the first time, in more than 3 years. As the saying goes... You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family.
