You’ll laugh at them and you’ll cry with them; you’ll wonder at them and you’ll sigh with them. But you’ll never forget the residents of Stillwater.
Rob Russell Davies’ A Little Town in Africa takes a funny, off-the-wall and yet passionate look at a community still letting go of apartheid. He introduces an unlikely heroine in the shape of Teresa Thomas: a pensioner who longs for the quite life, who would rather bake cakes and clothe the poor than chase after run-aways and tussle with villains. But her conscience and sense of fair play force her to open her eyes to a very different South Africa and an array of bizarre, eccentric and sometimes downright criminal characters are soon escorting her on the adventure of a lifetime.
