Category: 2016,theatre

Report by Ethan Van Diemen

Denise Newman stars in an new South African production, written and directed by Bobbie Fitchen. The play is a nuanced and insightful understanding of the “demons and scars” that drove Bessie Head to write so profoundly. As ever, Bessie shows a chance encounter in an airport lounge between the famed writer and an avid reader. Through this transient encounter, Head’s fears and delights are shared with the audience.
