“!” [Hollywood Blues]

Rowena Easton

Desperate times call for desperate pleasures: This spoken choir performance is an exhilarating comedy of trauma, where disaster, threat and survival are a way of life.

Smell the fear, feel their pain, marvel at the devastation... shrug, and thank God it's not you.

"An all-consuming journey through a kind of spoken word mash-up sound performance ... Funny and sophisticated." Semiconductor

Rowena Easton has received the Art Plus Award for Art in Public Places, and an Arts & Business First Time Sponsor Award

This work is impeccably self-conscious and ironic, witty and intelligent, easily exposing the absurdity of the disaster movie genre while paying affectionate homage. But to describe the piece as delightful is not to deny its substance and many resonances.

David Sheppeard Performs at Times

Reflections on eruptions, both geological and emotional, in a world intent on destruction.

The true story of French volcanologists Maurice & Katia Krafft who spent their lives on the edge, collide with everyday anxieties in this new play investigating the lengths we go to in order to forget essential truths.

Shortlisted for Best New Play Award, New Writing South

It was a fine piece of theatre and performance, even down to the karaoke performance of Benny & the Jets which gave an energetic lift to the climax – the whole show had this kaleidoscopic feel. You felt involved as much as being an spectator in the audience, and that is always quite something.

Multiplex by Christopher William Hill

ACT Kids Theatre

Multiplex shines a light on the shadowy existence of the ushers. A humorous fantasy of what lies in the parallel world beneath the candy-coloured foyers of a multiplex cinema.

To them, cinema is not just entertainment, its life. The characters become as complex and varied as the screen stars they are watching. Life really does reflect the movies

A Girl Called Owl

Written, directed and produced by Jon Keevy, performed by Briony Horwitz

Hot from South Africa after successes at The National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, Cape Town Edge Festival and Arts Alive Festival in Johannesburg, the Nightingale presents Jon Keevy's quirky, heart-breaking one-woman show told in two parts.

Olivia arrived in the town with her Dad; she was the new girl, the quiet girl, the weird girl. Then she met Kay, the girl with the scar.

Told in two parts, Owl begins with a new friendship in the heat of the Overberg summer between two ten-year-old girls, and finds them again six years later. It’s an honest picture of growing up different in the middle of nowhere; a story about climbing trees, punching boys and kissing girls. A story about growing up where nothing grows.

Briony Horwitz performs Jon Keevy’s script under his direction with choreography by Fiona Du Plooy and music by Brydon Bolton.

Jon Keevy has written a moving and evocative story with an unexpected end. He tackles the issues of domestic violence and teenage sexuality in an understated manner; which shies away from trite resolution.

Cape Times

Keevy’s writing is delightful. It is full of punch and flow and sparkle ... It is insightful and universal and touching and smart.

Ponyroach Theatre Reviews

Thank you, Jon Keevy, Owl os beautifully written and simply told. Briony is a compelling and exquisitely sincere personal narrative actor. What a delicious night at the theatre.

An ingenious and artistically brilliant piece of entertainment

Gather Ye Rosebuds by Silva Semerciyan

Sandpit Arts

When Medina invites Louise to her daughter's circumcision party, against everyone else's wishes, the two are forced to confront the secrets that bind them together.

As well as a compelling exploration of friendship and gender, Silva Semerciyan’s play is a brave indictment of the failures of the Arab Spring.

Winner of the Bulbul playwriting award 2012

... a compelling exploration of cross-cultural friendship, cultural relativism, moral absolutes and, most richly, the plurality of womanhood.
