A Midsummer Night's Dream

If we offend, it is with our good will. That you should think we come not to offend But with good will. To show our simple skill, That is the true beginning of our end. … The actors are at hand; and by their show You shall know all that you are like to know. Peter Quince (as Prologue), Act 5, Scene 1

4.48 Psychosis

Famous as the last text Sarah Kane wrote before she committed suicide, 4.48 Psychosis confronts the idea of loving and being loved.

 

More Info

Famous as last text Sarah Kane wrote before she committed suicide, 4.48 Psychosis confront the idea of loving and being loved. Endless doctor’s appointments, limitless questions, and persistent longing plague the text. Absurdity brings momentary relief from the fragmented experience of a young woman’s mental illness. Depression is a funny thing and there is a macabre beauty in death. Ultimately, she knows this will kill her.

The Horror of Permanence

“There is no means of testing which decision is better, because there is no basis for comparison. We live everything as it comes without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself?” The Unbearable Lightness of Being – Milan Kundera

More Info

Senior students of the Stellenbosch University Drama Department present Bryony Lavery’s Frozen, a stimulating and thought-provoking contemporary British drama.

Frozen explores the disappearance over 15 years of Rhona, a 9-year old girl, and the devastating effects of this trauma on her mother Nancy and her family. We follow the journey of Ralph, a paedophile serial killer, who is eventually caught and convicted of Rhona’s murder. The play offers a nuanced and sensitive view of both the mother’s and the perpetrator’s perspective. A third character, Agnetha, is an American psychiatrist and academic who specializes in researching the backgrounds of violent, serial murderers. She is asked to conduct psychological examinations on Ralph. Her evaluation of him reveals that he suffered severe physical and emotional abuse as a very young child, with far-reaching damage as a result.

The production is directed by Sukki Hofmeyr
