The Line

18 Jul 2012 - 12 Aug 2012

Venue: Barney Simon
Duration: 65 minutes no interval
Age Restriction: 13

THE MARKET THEATRE in association with DFL presents, THE LINE.

Following its sold-out premiere season at the 2012 WALE festival, THE LINE has been invited to perform at THE MARKET THEATRE from July 18-August 12, 2012.

THE LINE is the culmination of multi-award winning Actor, Director Gina Shmukler’s Masters Research on trauma and theatremaking.

THE LINE is a play about the nature of human and moments in time in South Africa.Having spent several months in the townships THE LINE is constructed from a series of interviews with South Africans involved or affected by the xenophobic attacks that took place in May 2008.
THE LINE explores the fragility of goodness and questions how the attacks were born, who is responsible, what makes good people do bad things and how one crosses the line?

THE LINE is written and directed by Gina Shmukler with music by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder and Production Design by Niall Griffin.
Starring Khutjo Green and Gabi Harris.

PG 14

‘Run, don’t walk, to see this outstanding new play. In a year that’s seen South African art hit international headlines, this is a welcome antidote: thoughtful, incisive and beautifully scripted,it’ll leave you wanting more. More answers, questions, insights, understanding. More please!.’

Lesley Lokko, UK-based best-selling novelist of Sundowners, Bitter Chocolate, One Secret Summer and many more.

Performance times: Tues-Sat @ 20h15 and Sun @ 15h15
