This week I got the very exciting news that my play Weekend Special will be performed at the Windybrow Theatre in Joubert Park... the daring dangerous heart of Johannesburg... in the shadow of Ponte Tower! So excited.
Weekend Special is set on the streets of a Johannesburg Township. It tells the story of the relationship between a daughter and her single young mother, her best friend and the local gossips... And the actresses Deborah and Yule rock. I made it especially to perform for a youth audience - where it does really well. It's relevant, it's funny, it's wacky - They dig it. In South Africa we don't have a massive theatre going audience - and by taking good work into schools we hope to convert even just a few to darken the doors of theatres in the future. Mmm.

This was the show we did for Dainfern College and one of the students in the front row filmed it - I think she did a fab job!
The shows are on the 16 and 18 June 2010 at 6pm - Come! Yay
