EVELYN CRESSWELL POETRY (article first published : 2002-01-23)

“The poet’s eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven.” So speaks Theseus in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Kwasuka Theatre Company will present a seven-month celebration of poetry in The Poet’s Eye. Running from January until July, it will take place on the final Sunday and Monday of each month at 18h00.

The programme consists of works by South African as well as internationally-known poets. It will also include revivals of some of the poetry programmes presented at Kwasuka over the past few years such as Do Not Go Gentle (Dylan Thomas) and A Littoral Zone (Douglas Livingstone).

The first production, Evelyn Cresswell’s Poetry takes place on January 27 and 28. The poems are about loss, love and nature. Beautifully written, they are the creations of the imaginative mind of a highly articulate and sensitive woman. A former lecturer, Evelyn Cresswell spent many years, as she says, “deeply immersed in Christian education and transformation, sheltering those from prison fleeing the country, hosting meetings of banned persons and in voluntary education products for the disadvantaged.”

Caroline Smart, Pieter Scholtz and Peter Gardner will give dramatised readings of a selection of her poems lasting approximately 45 minutes. Now based in the Mtunzini area, Evelyn Cresswell will be present at the performances and will read two poems of her own selection.

R25 per ticket includes a free glass of wine. Season tickets are available for all seven shows at R105 (R15 per show). The Poet’s Eye classifies as one of the few productions whereby drinks may be taken into the theatre. Please note that only plastic glasses may be used for this purpose.

Bar service and snacks will be available after the performance. To book, contact Liesel Bruce at Kwasuka Theatre on 031 309-2236.
