Performed by Chipawo Trust Zimbabwe – New Horizon Theatre Company

’The Key’ is a contemporary play that explores how the girl child struggles to find her place and space, in a world that is always imposing upon her; what, which, when, where and who. As every little or big decision she makes is scrutinized and criticized, how then can she stand up for herself and find her direction, values and choices. Does she really have to please everyone or just herself, who says she can or she can’t? Performed by two teenage girls about to enter adulthood, the two actresses bring out the intricate and captivating journey of the girl child as she innocently tries to balance expectations of parents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, boyfriends and society at large.
