An encounter between two people, each in search of some kind of fulfilment: anaesthetist
Jacques and Dance student Sizwe. The play moves through and between real time, surreal
time, dream time and who-knows-what time. The text requires the fascinated reader to
follow them through labyrinthine areas of lived experience, to ... what kind of resolution?
The play is the result of the Royal Court Theatre New Plays from South Africa: after 20 Years
of Democracy Programme.
‘Let me rush to add that I can’t recall any other production touching me this much in all
the corners of my psyche, mind, soul and solar plexus.’ – Wim Vorster, The Theatre Times
