The Masque Theatre is hosting a story with a sense of scent on their stage.

Sillage is written and directed by Penelope Youngleson and stars Michele Belknap and Rebecca Makin-Taylor.

This play won the Standard Bank Gold Ovation award at the National Arts Festival in 2016, only the fifth gold to be awarded to a theatre production in the festival’s history and the second to a female theatre maker.

It was also nominated for Best New South African Script at the 2017 Fleur du Caps.

Described as the trail of scent left behind when a person walks past you, “sillage” is a French word used in perfumery associated with olefactory memory.

The play is about a relationship between a mother and daughter packing up their family home so that the mother and father can move into a smaller apartment as they get older.

The production will be performed at the Masque Theatre in Muizenberg on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 June starting at 20:00.
