Bored? You live in Cape Town, don’t be! Here are fun things to do this weekend…

Scroll down to listen to the audio for more detail.

1. Go to the theatre

The story spans the Rodesian Civil War through to the land invasions and economic collapse.

It’s an emotional tribute exploring the plight of ordinary Zimbabweans and the strong women that form the backbone of that resilient society.

It’s on at Kalk Bay Theatre (Main Road, Kalk Bay) on Wednesdays to Saturdays at 8.30pm, until 26 September.
