In 2001 South Africa was devastated by the news of a brutal rape of a nine-month-old child who came to be known as baby Tshepang. The media reported that she has been gang raped by a group of six men. Later it was discovered that the men had been wrongfully accused and that the infant had instead been raped and sodomized by her mother’s boyfriend. Once the story of baby Tshepang hit the headlines, the scab was torn off a festering wound, and hundreds of similar stories followed.

Description

In 2001 South Africa was devestated by the news of a brutal rape of a nine-month-old child who came to be known as baby Tshepang. Once the story of baby Tshepang hit the headlines, the scab was torn off a festering wound. Weaving together ‘twenty thousand stories’ (the number of reported child rapes in South Africa each year), Tshepang is a play about love, forgiveness and the difficulties of coming to terms with a violation of this magnitude.
