2:00 PM Film: Liyana Liyana is a genre-defying documentary that tells the story of five children in the Kingdom of Eswatini who turn past trauma into an original fable about a girl named Liyana who embarks on a perilous quest to save her young twin brothers. The film weaves her animated journey together with poetic documentary scenes to create an inspiring tale of perseverance and hope.

Film presenters say "We will use the fictional story of a young African heroine to inspire the next generation of leaders to embrace their own strength and identities. We aim to cultivate the culture of hope and pride in the Swazi nation and across the Southern African region. We will encourage young people of all colors and backgrounds to make their voices and stories heard, and to unite their communities as they look for world-changing solutions within themselves. We'll promote the use of arts to support healing from loss and trauma, and use the power of storytelling to build empathy, hope, and to ignite imaginations."

Drinks and snacks will be provided.

8:00 PM Stage: As You Like It Rosalind flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
