Solomon and Marion

by Lara Foot Newton

Over the years, Marion has watched her life drain away. Children and husband gone, she ekes out her life in a country utterly transformed. But it’s the only home she has. As the new South Africa prepares for the World Cup finals, old divisions and suspicions seem as deep as ever, and the intruder she has been expecting, dreading and needing, arrives. Will true reconciliation turn darkness into hope?Solomon and Marion is a brand new play from an award winning South African writer, and it recently won the Fleur Du Cap Awardfor Best New South African Play.Foot is Artistic Director of the Baxter Theatre Centre and has won a bevy of South African theatre accolades. Foot has put most of her energy into helping other playwrights and theatre-makers realise 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. Her own hard-hitting plays tackle social issues and have laid barethe brutality and sickening frequency of child rape in South Africa; Tshepang (2002) was based on a real event, the alleged gang rape of a nine-month-old baby by six men in a remote, impoverished community. Foot used refined, ironic humour to sketch a portrait of the community, then turned everyday objects into symbols with horrific poetic effect. Karoo Moose (2007) returned to the subject of child rape and a rural town — a shattered, forsaken community where ‘there are no fathers’. A 15-year-old girl is sold for sex to pay off the gambling debts of her jobless and spiritually crushed father,‘an opportunist with no opportunities’. And in Solomon and Marion, Foot explores the cruelty of the meaningless murders which betray her country. Hear and Now, Karoo Moose and Tshepang are also published by Oberon Books.

Solstice

by Hilary Boyd Barbara Roddam

21st December 2012 was not only the date on which the Mayan calendar ended. In astrological terms the Solstice, at exactly 11.12 am that day, was also the moment when the sun was aligned with the centre of the Milky Way for the first time in 26,000 years. A moment at which the sun's energy streamed towards Earth, focused precisely on Stonehenge. Solstice follows the stories of seven characters, three women and four men, who are initially unaware of their mystical powers or of their past lives in the legendary city of Atlantis. They must come together to perform a vital ceremony at Stonehenge to rebalance the planet. 21st December 2012 is the only date for thousands of years when it can take place successfully. It's a race against time and a terrifying adversary from their shared past. Beneath the gripping, fast-paced story Hilary Boyd and Barbara Roddam deliver a serious parable for our times. Solstice explores the unequal balance between male and female energy – the Sun and Moon energy that Stonehenge was built to honour equally – that pervades our time. Men dominate the world, women are oppressed, technology (male energy) is supreme and our planet is violent and failing. New Age wisdom holds that only a rebalancing of these energies can save us.
