The premiere is set to be spiced with poetry, music and dance.

The play runs for an hour and takes a modern outlook to theatre, consisting of a collection of pieces of theatre, intertwined together to tell different stories of different women in society.

Nhimbe Trust communications manager, Ronald Moyo, said the play is about modern women with different personalities and backgrounds, but are brought together by fate.

“Most of these women meet in a queue while waiting to be served by a well-known prophet in the city and they share their secrets, which brings tears and laughter, while others claim their freedom in the house,” he said.
