No Christmas For Us is a play by Nokuzola Zoe Bikwana.

The original text

Bikwana’s play explores the events that took place in Nyanga in December 1976 which culminated in extreme violence between township residents and migrants, otherwise known as hostel dwellers.

It was one of the two winners of the 2016 SCrIBE Scriptwriting Competition, alongside Milton Schorr’s The Heroin Diaries.
