SEEING RED FOR FESTIVAL (article first published : 2001-06-21)

Standard Bank National Arts Festival audiences will get the chance to see multi-award winner Greig Coetzee’s latest work, Seeing Red in Grahamstown from June 29. Presented in association with the Playhouse Company, it will run in the Kingswood Space until July 6.

This critically-acclaimed work tells the story of a group of university students nearing the end of their varsity careers. What should have been a warm circle of friends turns sour because of rivalries and betrayal. (See review in Drama)

"I'm really excited at the prospect of presenting what is essentially a 'Natal' story to audiences outside the province. I'm positive that audiences everywhere will identify with the universal themes in Seeing Red, and see themselves in these five young South Africans," said Coetzee.

Written and directed by Greig Coetzee, Seeing Red features a strong cast which includes some of Durban's finest theatre talent: Belinda Harward, John van de Ruit, Ben Voss, Teboho "T-Bone" Hlahane and Sarahleigh Castelyn, with set and costume design by Greg King.

Seeing Red is also of particular interest to music lovers as the show includes music clips from 3rd Ear Music's Hidden Years Music Project archives. The archives cover local music from 1964-1994, which was banned or restricted, although the artists were immensely popular and performed around the country.

Tickets R35 and there is a recommended age restriction of 15, due to strong language in the show. The show runs for 140 minutes including interval.
