Shakespeare in Mzansi: Goba Msenge, a four-episode local drama mini-series based on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, will start airing on SABC1 on Thursday 23 August at 20h30.
It centres on two people falling in love despite their serious misgivings about one another. Kat and Nonhle Minola are two Cape Town socialites who rule the social scene with an iron fist. After landing up in jail, Kat signs a contract with her dad forcing her into marriage with a complete stranger. Nonhle is forced to take on a Xhosa tutor after failing Xhosa or her father will completely cut her off. These two socialites are about to be tamed by the transformational power of love.
Lead cast includes Poseletso Sejosingoe (Kat); Khanya Mkangisa (Nonhle); Timmy Kwebulana (Mbulelo); Thabang Sidloyi (Luxolo); Amandla Quwe (Funeka); Mbulelo Grootboom (Dumisane) and Schelaine Bennet (Vanessa).
Goba Msenge was produced for SABC1 by Penguin Films.
