'In Shafana and Aunt Sarrinah, Valentine asks a potent question: What do you do when you profoundly disagree with someone you love? Surely this question is the premise of some of the greatest drama of our times. Drama is, after all, the space where the personal and the political collide. It is the nexus where a thesis becomes embodied, where characters through their actions play out the pros and cons, where they inhabit the black, white and grey areas of our lives.' - Angela Betzien
