A journey through revolutionary struggle in Cape Town. Written by journalist and activist Gael Reagan, and produced by Iain Harris, the Revolution Route is infused with performance poetry and original music. It explores stories and characters of resistance to oppression, from the Khoekhoe resistance to colonial invasion, through the apartheid struggle where figures like Mandela, Kgosana, Biko and Haron feature strongly.
The Route was written by Gael Reagan, who was a journalist for underground newspaper Grass Routes in the late 1980s, covering the revolution as it took place. In the 1990s she covered the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for SABC TV, and in the 2000s, she was the arts editor for Cape Town daily newspaper the Cape Times. She is presently working as a freelance journalist.
