Guilty as charged

Theatre / City Hall

Two love birds, Ayanda Langa and Anita White, live with their single mothers, who happen not to see eye to eye. This antagonism has disastrous consequences.

Anita’s mother doesn’t approve of their relationship, because Ayanda doesn’t have the money to provide for her daughter. This leads to a plot that sees Ayanda arrested for a rape he didn’t commit.
