      Perfectly scripted, and with Gcina Mhlophe’s sure instinct for stagecraft, it recounts the very personal story of Zandile, who is snatched away from her grandmother’s loving care and taken to live with her matriarchal family in rural Transkei. Moving, funny and convincing, full of Zandile’s shrewd, youthful insights, the play offers an illuminating window onto the 1960s world that it depicts, with its issues of white dominance, rural hardship and black female repression.Have You Seen Zandile? is already an established favourite in performance circles, and is fast becoming a South African classic.

      Nokugcina Elsie Mhlophe (born 1958) is a well-known South African freedom fighter, activist, actor, storyteller, poet, playwright, director and author. Storytelling is a deeply traditional activity in Africa and Mhlophe is one of the few woman storytellers in a country dominated by males. She does her most important work through charismatic performances, working to preserve storytelling as a means of keeping history alive and encouraging South African children to read. She tells her stories in four of South Africa’s languages: English, Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa.
