A Shadow in the Sun

The play interrogates our society, especially on how it handles complex issues. Our society, like any other in the world, continues to evolve. Our generation is constantly exposed to difficult issues with no easy answers. “A Shadow in the Sun” takes us through a journey that highlights some of these issues that often appear simple, but in practice are complicated. What we saw on stage underscores the idea that when we take a simplistic approach to solving difficult issues, we are bound to make mistakes. The play problematizes challenging issues such as gender and sexuality and their representation in art to show us that when we encounter issues that are not amenable to any easy solution, we should appeal to our moral imagination. As John Paul Lederach, a peacebuilding scholar and practitioner writes, “moral imagination requires the capacity to imagine ourselves in a web of relationships that include our enemies; the ability to sustain a paradoxical curiosity that embraces complexity without reliance on dualistic polarity; the fundamental belief in and pursuit of the creative act; and the acceptance of the inherent risk of stepping into the mystery of the unknown that lies beyond the far too familiar landscape of violence.”
