The Fall is a frank collaborative piece of workshop theatre devised by the cast and took South Africa by storm when it premiered. Seven University of Cape Town Drama graduates share their experiences during the #RhodesMustFall and subsequent student movements’ demonstrations in 2015. Race, class, gender, sexism and colonialism – core to global conversations and interventions today - are tackled head-on, seeking to unpack discrimination in all its forms. 

The play does not offer solutions to the questions raised by the movements, which inspired it, but hopes to create and nurture dialogue on intersectional and institutionalised discrimination against the marginalised.  Winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award for writing, The Stage’s Ensemble Award for Acting, the Fleur du Cap Encore Award and shortlisted for the Amnesty International Award for Human Rights, the Fall amassed several 5 star reviews from various publications, including the New York Times, and is published internationally by Oberon Books.
