Khayelihle Dom Gumede created this play by adapting Themba’s short story “Crepuscule”, which is believed to be a fictional interpretation of Themba’s real life love affair with a white woman, Jean Hart, during the 1950s. Set in the often revered and romanticized world of Sophiatown, the play asks a range of pertinent  and contemporary socio-political questions. Themba and Hart’s illicit relationship serves as a means to unpack how much of our identity is formed by our environment and how much is shaped by our choices as individuals. “Crepuscule” is a story about human connection and a search for freedom and humanity in a world that sought to deny.
