The play was staged over the weekend at the National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) Backstage and more than 100 people in attendance laughed their lungs out throughout, despite the cold weather. The play also saw the two actresses delivering their best to bring alive the work written by acclaimed South African novelist, poet and playwright Zakes Mda. It was directed by Namibian film and stage director Vickson Hangula. Muller plays a retired prostitute who has fallen on hard times and is preoccupied by what has defined her for many years, played as a high-heeled gumchewing lady, while Mwange acted as a woman dressed as a domestic worker. They waited in a seemingly endless government queue at the “food bank office” for the subsidised rice they call “Harambee food”. As they were all prepared for this, one lady brought with her chair and make-up kit, while another brought food. Both even prepared to sleep in the queue to wait for the clerks to return the following morning. Initially doubtful of each other, the women cruelly criticise each other’s clothes and life choices. The audience also learned about the women’s individual backgrounds and how they came to be in these circumstances. “For how long can we wait for this?” asked one of them after four days of waiting. But, of course, such hopefulness is inappropriate. The audience also learned about their lived experience, not only through simple storytelling from one character to the other, but also in flashback form, as the same actresses animatedly embodied the men who betrayed them, the incompetent public servants unwilling to serve them, and surprisingly, a preaching former prostitute who found love and the gospel. After each personal revelation, The Lady and The Woman realise that they have more in common than either of them previously supposed and the initially suspicious and mysterious association between the two changes into an unlikely bond. At the end of the play The Lady and The Woman’s turn for their rice finally arrives and they become conflicted on whether they will subject themselves to endless paperwork and dismissive clerks, so that they can get their government rice, or rather find a way to fight. However, the productions bring together the best of Namibia’s actors, directors, producers, designers and technicians. Maxi

Speaking to New Era late last week, Wieland said her exploits on the stage in the US still feel like a dream. “When I was crowned it felt like a dream I will soon wake up from. It took days until it sank in that I am actually Miss Continents 2017,” she said with stars in her eyes. The former Miss Teen Namibia is 22 and hails from Swakopmund, but has also lived in Windhoek and Oranjemund. She is currently completing her honours degree in journalism at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. She already holds a degree in drama and theatre studies from the same institution. Current Miss Teen Namibia Mijeanne Marais represented Namibia at the Miss Teen Continents, while Wieland, Miss Namibia 2016 1st runner up, represented Namibia at the prestigious Miss Continents pageant. Miss Continents Andeline Wieland Writer of Sibanda series in Windhoek this week Staff Reporter Windhoek CM Elliott is in Windhoek on Wednesday and Thursday to introduce her third book, Sibanda and the Black Sparrohawk. Sibanda and the Black Sparrohawk is the third book in the series. The first novel, Sibanda and the Rainbird, is about African medicines and the murderous trade in body parts, and the second, Sibanda and the Death’s Head Moth, covers the brutal and unscrupulous world of rhino and elephant poaching. When a skinned body is discovered on the side of the railway line deep in the Matabele bush, Detective Inspector Jabulani Sibanda, along with his sidekicks, Sergeant Ncube and the troublesome Land Rover, Miss Daisy, is back on the trail of a murderer. As more girls go missing and more bones are discovered, Sibanda realises they are dealing with the signature of a vicious serial killer who chooses the train as his killing field. Suspects abound, and the trio pursues the leads relentlessly, but the warped psychopath is elusive. Has Sibanda met his match?
