And the Girls in Their Sunday Dresses

(1994)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Two very different women meet during a long wait to buy subsidized rice and discover they have more in common than their poverty; an old man and a child share a last loving waltz; a cynical, disabled gangster learns humanity from a committed social worker, and a young girl finds her missing father and her role in the political struggle.

This collection of stage plays, one radio play and a cinepoem, captures the essence of Zakes Mda's method as a dramatist- a slow but intimate process of revelation (on the part of the characters). It is an artistic cooperation of the most pleasurable kind.
