UCT graduate Lauren Hannie’s play TIP-ex won the Best of Zabalaza Production award for 2016.
This is the first time a woman director and writer has won the award since the launch of the festival in 2011. Hannie’s production was nominated in five categories – she also won the award for best script.
TIP-ex is a three-hander starring Hannie, Melissa Johannisen and Maxine Caesar. The play focuses on gender issues and particularly on corrective rape, which is still prevalent in many South African communities today.
TIP-ex will preview at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio from 12 to 13 April and will run from 14 to 23 April at 19h30 with matinees on 16 and 23 April at 14h00.
The play has an age restriction of 13.
