The Children’s Monologues dramatise the testimonies of young children growing up in Rammulotsi, a small rural township in the Free State province of South Africa. Invited to describe a day that made their soul happy or sad, The Children’s Monologues retell the true stories of young people expressing personal experiences in their own words. Five years ago the original Monologues brought together an all-star cast for a night of unique and unmissable theatre.
