It is a busy week for the students of St. Gabriel’s School for Boys. With exam preparations underway and open day coming up, matric boarding house mates, Tebogo, Zwi, Will, Siya and George are…well … a little more pre-occupied than usual:
Head Boy, Tebogo is at odds with a school teacher.
Deputy Head Boy, Zwi is organising the school dance.
First Team Rugby Captain, Will is preparing for a big game.
Siya is trying to navigate a new relationship.
and George is well…good ol’ George.
Yes, a little more pre-occupied than usual especially when the five friends find themselves in the centre of a serious investigation that not only threatens to unravel the tragic intricacies of the St. Gabriel’s community but what little is left of their innocence.
But worry not, keep calm, everything is under control, the children are in safe hands.
Created by Tiisetso Mashifane wa Noni , it is inspired by actual events in SA schools over the past few years. It has been hailed as a breakthrough by a new generation of dynamic theatre makers and playwrights.
