This searing and compassionate play is inspired by the true case of Baby Tshepang who was brutally raped and which brought to light thousands of similar incidents in South Africa. Weaving together ‘twenty thousand stories’ (the number of reported child rapes in South Africa each year), Tshepang – The Third Testament tells a story of love, forgiveness and the difficulties of coming to terms with a violation of this magnitude. Lara Foot Newton’s play is a committed act of remembrance.
