MOFFIE – Riverside studios

5 - 30 June

“These men trying to mould us into something we’re not… They must not be able to touch us…”

It’s 1979 and South Africa’s government’s main concern is keeping Southern Africa free of communism, to protect the Afrikaner people, Christianity, and the free world. To do this, they need bodies, and seventeen-year-old Nicholas van der Swart is conscripted into the South African Defence Force and finds himself in the dark heart of a regime that demands absolute conformity, brute masculinity, racism, and bigotry.

Set against the backdrop of apartheid South Africa, “MOFFIE” traces Nicholas’s struggle against societal expectations and his internal battle in discovering his own identity amidst the violence of South Africa’s border war, which took place between 1966 – 1989.

Audience discretion is advised due to mature themes addressed in the play, which include prejudice, bigotry, descriptions of violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and suicide.
