1. House, Melanie J. Their Place on the South African Stage:The Peninsula Dramatic Society and the Trafalgar Players.

Degree: PhD, Theatre, 2010, The Ohio State University

Racial segregation was a long-standing practice in South Africa, but until the NationalGovernment formalized it under apartheid in 1948, social groups formed based onfamilial bonds, common education and economic status. Consequently, within certainculturally diverse communities, South Africans of various ethnicities interacted withminimal regard for the barriers imposed by state mandated separatism. South Africancommunities such as Cape Town’s District Six were one such microcosm, where multiethnicperformance groups such as the Peninsula Dramatic Society (PDS) and the Trafalgar Players (TP) were born. This historiography explores the relationship betweenthe apartheid these groups. Through oral histories collected from surviving members ofthe troupes, this study illustrates the impact of social constructs such as race and casteon theatre communities in South Africa. It extends scholarly knowledge regarding theepidemiology and social impact of apartheid and highlights Resistance Theatre as culturalphenomena, a declaration of identity and vehicle for equality and social justice. Mostimportant, it brings into focus, some of the individuals who, through their stagecraft,gave shape, form and voice to coloured resistance theatre. Advisors/Committee Members: Ferris, Lesley (Advisor).
