Audiences in for a treat

2008-07-31 00:00

IT’S less than two months to go to the Witness Hilton Arts Festival, which is now 16 years old. Festival director Sue Clarence has her shows signed up, and it is all systems go for September 12 when the curtain goes up.

Another production to relish in the drama field is I, Claudia, one of the hits of this year’s main festival programme at Grahamstown. The play is performed in masks, and tells the story of Claudia, a pre-teen misfit who hides her sorrows — and other things — in the school basement. It is a play that will make you laugh and cry. KickstArt, who almost single-handedly (or double-handedly as the company is led by Greg King and Steven Stead) keep theatre vibrant in KZN these days, are presenting two of their 2008 hits — the irrepressible Lisa Bobbert in Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine and Tim Wells and Janna Ramos Violante in David Mamet’s Oleanna. Both reach the high standard KickstArt have set themselves. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
