FANIE FOURIE’S LOBOLA

Claudia Cassidy Theater at the Chicago Cultural Center   l

78 E. Washington St., 2nd Floor North

This lighthearted story astutely tackles the messy, surprising, and often funny consequences of cross-cultural and unexpected romance.

After a prank to irritate their conservative families evolves into undeniable love, Dinky, a Zulu woman, and Fanie,

an Afrikaans man, must overcome cultural and familial differences, jealous ex-lovers, and even the Zulu “Lobola”

(akin to a dowry) in an effort to legitimize their feelings and bridge a fractured community. Zulu, English and Afrikaans with subtitles.

*post-screening discussion
