FROM MY POINT OF VIEW (article first published : 2007-08-26)

In 2005, Clare Mortimer and Darren King took what was a short story by Steven Berkoff and made it into a one act play, From My Point of View, which comes to the Kwasuka Cutting Edge Theatre from August 26.

From My Point of View contained all the elements of performance the two most enjoy and told a story begging to be shared. The play weaves the evocative beauty and explosive language so true of Berkoff’s work with a physical edge Mortimer and King longed to explore. The result is fifty minutes of seamless theatre. The performers lead the audience through a tale balanced somewhere between heartache and laughter, all the while playing off the big band that underscores the piece. They prod and cajole, tango, wrestle and seduce, all the while carrying the furniture and sometimes each other! Grahamstown audiences spoke up, as did the critics - this was excellent theatre.

From My Point of View runs at Kwasuka Cutting Edge Theatre from August 28 until September 9. Shows are Tues to Sat at 8pm, Sundays at 6pm EXCEPT for Friday 31 August, when the show starts an hour later at 9pm. Tickets are R65.00 full price and R45.00 for students and pensioners. Booking through Strictly Tickets at strictlytickets.com or on their phone at 083 918 8551, or through the Catalina at 031 305 6889.
