Have You Seen Zandile? is a wonderful play, still as fresh and absorbing as when it was first written. 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 classic. Performed to great acclaim at the Edinburgh festival.
