Lesego Motsepe - the late fictional soapie character Lettie Matabane of Isidingo fame - has bounced back after leaving the SABC3 series.

She has landed a role in the comedy And Girls in their Sunday Dresses now on at the State Theatre in Pretoria.

Motsepe, whose last appearance in the soapie was last month, says she is excited to be back where her career began.

"I was trained in stage," Motsepe says. "Theatre is my first passion and will always go back where I belong."

And Girls in their Sunday Dresse s is an adaptation of a collection of Zakes Mda short stories.

Motsepe, who has made her name both as a poet and television actress, last acted on stage 10 years ago in a show called Scribble.

"Acting on stage requires a different technique," she says. "If you make a mistake people see it. I have been doing many things but I missed acting on the stage."

Asked why it took her 10 years to get back on the stage she said: "I will be honest with you. I have been offered many roles in musicals but turned them down because of my hectic schedule."

Motsepe has worked in the arts industry for 12 years as an accomplished television actress, storyteller and poet.
