The Sewing Machine

The English version of Rachelle Greeff`s hit play Die Naaimasjien – winner of four major theatre awards – comes to the Pieter Toeriens stage.

Why go?

The play is about the 82-year-old Magdaleen who sits in her old-age home, preparing to say goodbye to her sewing machine, her constant companion for more than 55 years. In the heart of South African apartheid, Magdaleen champions her treasured femininity far above her white race, seeking a sisterhood that will hold her together. Now, 81 and passing her last years in a retirement home, Magdaleen is to undo the seams of her identity as she sells her best friend, sister and confidante: the trusty sewing machine that had for so long threaded through every aspect of her life and hemmed in the fabric of her family.
