Two plays from the author of stoning mary.

trade is a short play dealing with the controversial topic of female sex tourism.

‘Why would I do back ‘here’ when I ain’t back ‘here’ – I’m ‘there’ – don’t make no sense – I’m not at home am I. Am i? I’m ‘there’ on holiday’

Three black women on a Caribbean island: a hip young thing from London, an older tourist and a resident native. One subject. Two worlds. Three points of view.

generations is a 30-minute drama about three generations of a black South African family who contest their relative culinary skills. But food isn’t the only topic and the family numbers are declining…

‘I was the cooker – you was the cookless – I was the cooker who coached the cookless. I coached you to cook.’
