Lazy Boy by Palesa Mazamisa

Live Zoom Reading (Running time: 60 minutes)

The Red Ants are scurrying about, creating piles of destruction in an already bleak informal settlement. Agnes is left despondent and hopeless in the space that was once her shack, but she vows not to give up. She addresses two Red Ants carrying away the only possession she cares about, her chair. Already exhausted, depressed and frustrated, she needs the lazyboy to get through the assault on her dignity, her right to live in a home, however shambolic it may be. So she begs the young men to return the chair, her symbol of independence, the first item she bought for herself after leaving the man who used money to control her. Her sanity is vested in this chair, it’s her solace, her comfort spot that allows her to think and hatch a plan to move back to her home province where she’s left her two daughters in the care of their father, her ex. LAZYBOY is a woman’s plea for her dignity amidst chaos. Set in a time of fear and anxiety caused by the covid-19 pandemic, the play takes the audience through a journey of desperation, anger, sorrow and ultimately a sliver of humanity. LAZYBOY is the story of a woman seeking to triumph against all odds.
