This event is being held at the Nottingham Playhouse (Neville Studio) Please note that latecomers will not be admitted to the performance. This award-winning play revisits the horror of a racially-motivated shooting spree that devastated the remote settlement of Skierlik in 2008. Thomas moved away after his wife and three month old daughter were killed in the atrocity: the burden of living alone in the family home was unbearable. But now he's returning. We ride with him on the long dirt road back to Skierlik. Following Thomas's thoughts, we too experience what he is about to face back home in his tiny shack: the blue shack that he knows so well, with the padlock on his door. Suitable for 14+ Approx. 60 minutes running time (no interval) Skierlik is presented by arrangement with Lentswe Arts Projects. Written and performed by Phillip Dikotla. Lakeside is thrilled to be one of 17 partners nationally welcoming Afrovibes Festival. It is supported by Arts Council England and is part of the South African Season in the UK 2014 and 2015 organised by the South African Department of Arts and Culture.
