The CiTT class premiered the production True Colours at the intwasa Arts Festival on 1st of October at the Bulawayo Theatre.
True Colours is written by 18 year old CiTT student John Mabuyane with the guidance of CiTT class teachers. The play is about how the City Council’s blitz on vendors around the city has affected the livelihood and access to education of the children of those vendors. It depicts how, despite the nation falling apart, the voices of children are getting louder and louder by the day.
It tells the story of how some children have dropped out of school because their parents could no longer raise money for fees due to the brutal treatment from the Council amongst other trickling effects of the scourge against vending.
