Recepies, Remedies, And Rumors
“I’ve never loved anybody without suffering.”
A story of a mother who loses her son to a mob killing. She never gets answers. She never gets over it. Her life holds the desire for revenge and the resurrection of her son. As we reflected on the legacy of Emmett Till, we began to draw parallels with South Africa’s history of state terror and unbridled racism. We began to explore the complexity of stolen lives and the remnants of those left behind. What are the recipes that reshape lives whole again? This play is intentionally explored through the lives of two female bodies who, like Mamie Till and countless black women in South Africa, the US, and beyond that carry the womb pain of shattered black bodies. This is a meditation on personal histories, justice, accountability, and radical wholeness by any means necessary.
“I have an uncle and still don’t know where he is…”- Refiloe Lepere
