Poppehuisietjie

Theatre / Glennie Hall

Poppehuisietjie is a play focusing on one of our country’s current issues, namely Gender Based Violence. The play gives a refreshing angle to the concept as it explores the issue from the perpetrators’ perspective. This is a story of a young boy and his journey into adult themes such as love,​ lust and romance.
