THE ROPE (article first published : 2001-10-20)

The Rope, a play by Dennis Rubin and featuring Michelle Driman, is being staged for the second time in Durban! It was a sell-out in its first run at the NOT the Grahamstown Festival and was received exceptionally well at the Standard Bank National Arts Festival 2001 where it ran for 10 days.

Reviewed on artSMart during the Grahamstown Festival (see Drama or Festival archives), The Rope features the last few hours of convicted murderess Catherine Doulle. As she faces the prospect of those last fatal 12 steps to the execution chamber, she looks back at the events and influences that have led her to this moment.

This is a strong and well-written one-act play and Michelle Driman puts in a fine sustained performance. The Rope can be seen at Unit 6, Springfield Park from October 24 to 27 at 19h00 for 19h30.

Tickets R30 with an optional meal at R35 pp. Book through Michelle Driman on 082 466-8578, Dennis Rubin on 082 720-9387 or at Unit 6, Springfield Park on (031) 579-1230 (the theatre will provide any further information & directions)
