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

Mpinga Mornings explores how the lives of three women – a mother, a daughter and maid – are inextricably bound together by a farm and a common history.

Mpinga Mornings is set in the troubled Zimbabwe of recent times.

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.

Tickets cost R125 (click here to book)
