While we hate is a series of vignettes adapted from real life events, newspaper headlines and news reports. It is made up of short dramedic scenes interspersed with audio-visual transitions.
The play weaves together three narratives that all centre on hate crimes targeted at members of the LGBTQIA+ community. The story is told through the eyes of civil servants who interact with LGBT persons in their everyday lives as part of their public duty.
While We Hate is meant to give the audience, whether they are LGBT or non-LGBT something to think about.
People should ask themselves how and why they become complicit in the ill treatment of those considered to be ‘minorities’. They should also question how, when and why, they themselves act in a disrespectful or inhumane way. What happens to us while our lives are being filtered through the system? Who suffers while we hate each other, in the name of morality, religion, and personal conviction.”
