Event description

Description

“This play is for every person who has ever been in a relationship." ~Chronical.co.zw

"An inspiring, classical...production" ~UrbanCulxure.com




Synopsis: Starting their journey together as newlyweds, Ava and Robert test their love and commitment as they are subjected to the whispers and opinions of family and friends. It all eventually lures them to question who they can trust in their inner circle. A light-hearted situation comedy with masterful storytelling that keeps you on the edge guessing who is truthful and what is real.

Written by: Mandi Mash

Directed by: Mandi Mash

Produced by: M. Mashingaidze

City of Origin: Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

Suitability: General Audiences (under 5 yrs NOT permitted)

Genre: Situational Comedy, Drama with Music




ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT: Theatre is not as popular Zimbabwe as in the USA. And although drama and music are expressed, they are not regarded as fulltime jobs. I have written so many productions, each one better than the last and I'd like to believe and each one is teaching me a different lesson. I would also like to believe that I am now ready to pit myself up against an international audience in an effort to begin to learn and grow from that too. The cast is so very talented but sometimes it is in taking ourselves outside of our comfort zones that we begin to clearly see our abilities, shortfalls, cracks and more importantly regain that confidence we may have lost. This is truly my main reason for wanting to take this big leap. We're so honoured and looking forward to participating in the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival.
