This collection of ten plays, written by playwrights diverse in age, educational background and theatrical experience, explores a wide range of experiences of black women, both during and after the apartheid era. "Sheila's Day" by Duma Ndlovu examines the role of the poor, uneducated women in their struggle for survival, while Gcina Mhlophe's "Have you seen Sandile?" records the personal journey of a young girl taken away from her grandmother by her long-lost mother. Health and labour conditions are the topic of "The Nurse", and single black women who look for a better life in the city are the subject of "Kwalandlady". "Women" explores domestic violence and power in a township home, while "A Coloured Place" by Lueen Conning and "Cheaper Than Roses" deal with the lives of coloured women.
