SA Gay Plays 2

The fact that ten gay-themed plays written by South African playwrights since 1994 can be collected in a two-volume anthology tells you something about the burgeoning of gay plays that took place in the wake of the 1996 South African Constitution. For the first time ever anywhere in the world, the Constitution explicitly outlawed any form of discrimination based on, among other things, sexual orientation. For gay people in South Africa, that was a hugely significant moment. These plays serve to illuminate that brave legislative act conferring dignity.

Plays included:

Robert Colman Your Loving Simon 2003

Peter Krummeck iVirgin Boy 2005

Amy Jephta Other People’s Lives 2011

Nicholas Spagnoletti Special Thanks to Guests from Afar 2012
