In anger, Bheksisa confronts his girlfriend, Thato and breaks up with her, even though Thato swears that he was the only one and she has no idea how she could be HIV positive. After he has gone, she takes her own life in despair.

A heartbroken, guilt ridden Bheksisa leaves his home and drowns his sorrows in beer.  But he does not know that he has been framed and that his Stepfather, Mike has had the tests forged. Mike is blackmailing Bheksisa’s mother, Masi, to keep her quiet and to keep Bheksisa alive, because she has found out that Mike, who is the leader of his congregation is not the good person everybody thinks he is and he is dealing in human body parts and using them for Muti.

Because Off The Wall Plays is a smaller publishing house, we have the resources and time it needs to get your play out there. We put a synopsis and sample of your your play on the front page of the website, when your play goes live, so it gets seen and not just filed into a genre with thousands of other plays. It stays in our top ten new plays for the next few months.We place a sample of your script on the website, not the full play so no one will be able to illegally use your work.

If your play sells well, we will add it to our “Best Sellers” list, automatically ranking it higher than ordinary plays, the price increases, and so do your Royalties. Plays bought to be used for a run or a season will also have license fees that will be paid by the organization that purchased the play, and 50% of those will go to the authors as well.

Once your play has been submitted, your play will be reviewed by our editor, who will contact you. Please have a look at our guidelines for submitting your play – by following these guidelines it will help your play sell.  We don’t mind correcting the odd typo, but plays with many spelling mistakes, missing punctuation marks and poor grammar will be sent back to the authors for correction before they can be considered for publishing, so please make sure yours is 100% first before you send it! We also try to get back to authors within a few days at most so they will know almost immediately that their script has been received and whether or not it will be published.
