Fishers of Hope
Written and directed by Lara Foot (South Africa)

Known for her award-winning plays that tackle social issues, Foot’s play explores the theme of hope: its essence, values, meaning, impressions, longevity and even possible demise, examining the prospects of hope and livelihood within the African continent. Followed by a conversation with Lara Foot and Christopher Hibma.

Foot has put most of her energy into helping other playwrights and theatre-makers realize their work, and she has nurtured several dozen new South African plays to their first staging. This includes producing the international hit Mies Julie written and directed by Yael Farber.
