Albinism is still socially and medically misinterpreted. The physical appearance of an individual with albinism usually draws outrages myths and beliefs, which cultivates their social exclusion and marginalisation. The play deals with the prejudices that affect the lives of people living with albinism.
The audience can expect interviews with people living with albinism. Matlakala, the main character, is a 15 year old teenager living with Albinism. Her mother, Anna is a loving, caring woman and is married to Ike. Ike, a successful professional and is the step-father of our heroine. Two other characters, also with Albinism, appear as Matlakala’s alter-egos. They represent the conflict in Matlakala’s head. She is haunted by a life of abuse and the secrets she has had to keep from everyone, including her mother. The production is heartfelt, but also educational. One can sympathise and also be well informed about albinism.
