A Feast in Time of Plague explores the artistic responses of state-funded theatre-makers to the apartheid regime. The film tells the story of the freethinking individuals who worked in the Cape Performing Arts Board (CAPAB) between 1970 and 1990, and the mischievous and innovative ways they challenged segregation, censorship, and the actions of the apartheid government. The film then uses this history to take a sober look at censorship and innovation in the current South African theatre industry, wondering whether it has truly progressed or whether we are taking a few steps back.
