“The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination” Don Williams, Jr. (American Novelist and Poet 1968).

In life we move into places and spaces, this places and spaces become our destinations or destiny. Sometimes we fight to belong, we lose or win become its fate. As we journey through life we accumulate experiences and acquire material belongings. Sometimes one stay in a place or phase is determined by material acquired during the period stayed, this halts one’s journey for in good or a bad way. Sometimes when we move me lose our material acquisitions. Life therefore becomes a process of moving and staying; this process involves accumulation and loss. However the journey is always remembered its positives and negatives. In this production, the journey through life is explored through a number of interrelated and independent stories. The stories explore the impact of the personal journeys, experiences, loss, gains and memories.

These stories are personal stories of the actors, which were gathered during the process of rehearsals, but it is also the personal journey of the directors Kingdom Moshounyane, as he confronts what he has learnt over the many years that he has been involved in the theatre. Kingdom confronts longstanding theatrical conventions as he embarks on journey of growth both as Scholar and a theatre-practitioner. The production is also the beginning of the journey for the two assistant’s directors Meschack Bunch Sekhobo and Alcapone Peterson. These two well known actors make their directorial debut in this production, as they begin to embark on their directing journey.
