Valley Song


You are here

One generation clings to the past while another aches for the future. 

In post-apartheid South Africa, in a valley where properties are still owned exclusively by white people, 76-year-old Abraam “Buks” Jonkers continues to till the land he will never own. But while Buks loyally maintains the prized property of his past, his golden-voiced granddaughter, Veronica, can’t wait to star on Johannesburg stages. When a potential new property owner arrives, both Buks and Veronica must decide if they will hold tight to their past or take a chance on the future. A theatrical poem told by two actors, Valley Song brings timeless truths to life through the beautiful South African landscape.
