Festival is still booming

2008-07-03 00:00

MOVING around the streets and theatres of Grahamstown, you inevitably bump into Sue Clarence and Doreen Stanley, on the lookout for shows that should make the journey to the Hilton Festival in September. They are not saying yet what they have signed up, but there are plenty of shows it would be good to see up here in the warmer parts of the country.

As I wrote on Monday, one highlight for me was Dada Masilo’s Romeo & Juliet. Others were Australia vs South Africa; I, Claudia, a poignant story of pre-teen angst in which Susan Danford performs all the roles wearing masks — that would be a great one for Hilton, if available; An African Celebration, the slick concert to celebrate 25 years of the Standard Bank’s involvement; the clever comedy about language The Dog’s Bollocks; and the perambulating, outdoor celebration of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Puck’s Story.
