Rosetta resident and well-known actor, Mark Mulder, will this month be performing in Justice is a Woman, a play highlighting gender inequality, the #MeToo campaign and the ethical dilemmas of the justice system.
The play will be performed from May 23 to June 8 at Michaelhouse, Grace College and the Hexagon Theatre.
Mulder recently starred in two proudly SA films, The Last Victims, a drama about a death squad member’s search for the bodies of a missing anti-apartheid cell, and Rare Blood, a thriller about a cruel family cat and mouse game. He’s also appeared in Egoli and taken on many roles in film, television and theatre.
Written by former Human Rights advocate, former KZN High Court judge and author Chris Nicholson, the play features a local cast (cast members from Rosetta, Hilton, Pietermaritzburg and Howick). It is directed by Paul Spence, formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Set in a KZN university in 2018, after many years of exclusion of women as lawyers in the courtroom, Justice is a Woman tells the captivating story of a female post-graduate student’s molestation case against her male university professor. Lead character Portia, the lawyer representing the professor, is faced with an ethical dilemma that forces her to question her values and threatens to tear her personal life apart.
** The production will take place from May 23-25 at Michaelhouse; May 29-30 at Grace College, and June 4-8 at the Hexagon Theatre, Pietermaritzburg.
Tickets are R80 per person (R130 Hexagon), R50 pensioners (R80 Hexagon) and students R40. For more information, follow @justiceisawoman on Facebook or contact Paul Spence on firstname.lastname@example.org or (084) 341 1742.
