Q : Do you want your child to have the best education and a bright future? 

A : Take them to a model C school

Q : Want your child to develop an identity crisis and carry the eternal judgement of their people? 

A : Take them to a model C school

How to Crack a Coconut explores the experience, judgement and shame of being  "English through the nostrils" speaking, suburban dwelling, model C school educated - all the while having the nerve to be Zulu, South African and black. And the consequences of daring to exist. 

Written by Ncumisa Ndimeni and directed by Khutjo Green. Starring the talents of the Market Theatre Lab.
