Kol-Kes, created a new short play about lesbian lives in Botswana. “BUTCHered” premiered on May 17, 2013, in the creator’s second annual dedication to the International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia.

Synopsis of BUTCHered

Theatrical maven and crowd-pulling actress Tracey is celebrating her 30th birthday by hosting a dinner at her and her girlfriend’s apartment in the heart of Gaborone. The guest-list, kept particularly short, features: Frankie- a Television producer and Filmmaker, Thai- an Herbalist, Leo- Tracey’s best friend and Lawyer, and Deb- Tracey’s girlfriend, a Household Product Engineer. What is set to be an intimate dinner evolves into a claustrophobic affair when Sam, Tracey’s ex-girlfriend, appears and a trip down memory lane unlocks doors to secrets & lies and friends turn on one another in a fight for survival. Where is the line between betrayal and protection?
Art Exhibition
