Durban is yet again the stage for good LGBTQ theatre, Thabiso Radebe - fresh from his well received run of Sofia Town - is bring us the sequel to High Heels with Balls - a gutsy drama piece that brought about good honest dialogue amongst viewers. Not for the faint of heart, and most definitely not for sensitive viewers, Radebe hits at sore points and speaks out aloud the questions that are so often asked.
A brave individual willing to stand in the gap and generate dialogue.

This week at the Catalina Theatre, Thabiso Radebe introduces another run this year of "7inch Stilettos" which sees Radebe and Sisanda Tshali collaborating with fine artist Sphephelo Mnguni.

Radebe's portrayal of Joyani is poignant and emotive.
"We are confronted with choices everyday. Sometimes we get them wrong, and sometimes right. Wrong tends to sting more than right satisfies. Bad and good decisions can get even thornier to make when they get more personal, involving ethics and morality."

Living on the streets, he's involved in the sex trade business, drug use and murders. His choices have become a burden to him as he seeks a direction
to a better Future.
