Synopsis

Kim, a naïve, poorly educated English girl, is enjoying the delights of London in the ‘Swinging Sixties’ when a chance encounter takes her on a journey to South Africa. Travelling as an actor with a touring Shakespeare company, Kim is irrevocably drawn to the ‘beloved country’, but her abhorrence of the oppressive system of apartheid forces her to return home.

This experience changes the direction of her life, and now, having achieved a longed-for education, she is on a mission: to stop the spread of HIV. She creates the Themba HIV&AIDS Organisation in Johannesburg and recruits and trains young people from the townships to deliver a unique programme of interactive theatre workshops.
