“Tip-ex” the gripping drama written, directed and performed by Lauren Hannie will make its official debut at the 6th annual Zabalaza Theatre Festival 11 – 19 March 2016, hosted at the Baxter Theatre, Cape Town. The show by Hannie, tells the story about a woman, Katie Williams, who through music and storytelling allows the audience into her life.
Katie Williams grew up in a very typical coloured community on the Cape Flats. She has always been different from a young age and when she realises she has feelings for the same sex, she confesses this to her family. The information is not taken lightly, to such an extent that a male relative trying to “fix Katie”, decides to rape her. Find all the show details below…
