Daphne Kuhn & Starstruck present




Get ready for a captivating one-person play by PAUL SLABOLEPSZY, starring the talented ANNIE ROBINSON-GREALY and directed by WILLIAM LE CORDEUR. This unique production promises to take you on a mesmerizing journey and is presented by Daphne Kuhn & Starstruck.

An unplanned road trip through the KZN Midlands sets the scene for a quirky tale of alien-abduction and self-discovery in a place where past, present and future collide.

uKhahlamba was the first Zulu word Rose Ellison learned as a little girl. Perched upon the lap of her beloved carer and sangoma she listened in awe to the ancient tribal legends of the abelungu, the ‘sky gods’ that came down from the heavens long, long ago. The stories of the Drakensberg, the magical, imposing Barrier of Spears have remained etched in her memory as clear as the days she lived in their shadow.

Over fifty years have passed and in a serendipitous twist of fate, a now middle-aged, disillusioned Rose finds herself back in the Midlands of her childhood. Stumbling upon Elizabeth Klarer’s book Beyond the Light Barrier, she is fascinated to discover that she and this controversial ‘Daughter of Rosetta’ once crossed paths. In an attempt to reconnect with the loving, exuberant, creative young woman she once was Rose embarks on a transformative journey which changes her entire outlook on life, humanity in general and the ever-increasing need to take care of our precious planet.

FINDING ROSETTA was first performed at the Hilton Arts Festival on 12th August, 2023 and received a rapturous response.

“A delicately written and moving portrait of a truly remarkable woman. I loved it.”– Craig Higginson.

“This one act, solo performance is out of the top drawer, the story is intriguing, the humour South African, and the narrative excellently crafted by Paul Slabolepszy.” 
– Steuart Pennington, CEO SA – The Good News

The play runs 70 minutes and there is no interval.
