The show is directed by award-winning theatre maker Lesedi Job with a cast including “Scandal” TV star Natasha Sutherland.

The adaptation of former television anchor and radio personality Tracy Going's book Brutal Legacy, has made it to Sandton’s Auto & General Theatre on the Square.

The play inspired by her memoirs - detailing the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father and later her partner, officially premiered on Wednesday this week.

The show has been directed and adapted by award-winning theatre maker Lesedi Job with a cast including _Scandal _TV star Natasha Sutherland, Charlie Bougenon and Jessica Wolhuter.
