Rosemary Mason was born in Rhodesia in 1926. As they moved from place to place, she went to Penhalonga, Sherwood Starr and Gatooma schools and both Chaplin School and the Convent in Gwelo.
For sixty years, she was active in the theatre, singing, acting and directing plays and musicals, also designing and painting sets.
She was awarded a trophy for her sets for Arthur Millar’s “The Crucible”, the Umtali Player’s National Theatre entry. Also, she received the Rep’s Theatre award for excellence for het sets in Salisbury, Rhodesia.
She appeared in the T.V. series “Thinking about Africa” shot at the Victoria Falls in the late eighties.
Her life’s adventures spanned several continents and numerous relationships, some less hazardous than others, also several proposals, two marriages and two divorces.
Becoming more fearful for her life alone in an increasingly lawless Zimbabwe, she left to live with her daughter, Sherrell, in South Africa and they both left there seven years later to live with her other daughter, Jennifer, in Australia.
