Indian Theatre: Botoo

Written and directed by Ronnie Govender, Botoo, a long-awaited stage piece based on Dr Devi Rajab’s book, Women South Africans of India Origin, premieres in The Loft theatre on 8 August and runs until 17 August.

Govender has chosen to focus on an interview the writer had with Dr Gonum, a visionary and a feminist who took part in the Passive Resistance Movement. She dressed in the traditional way yet smoked and drank. She was a woman of contradictions and has sparked many debates over the years. Tickets are R100 per person, students just R35 each.
