…is that FTH:K rocks!!  Ok, I may be a little biased there BUT the work we are making is obviously doing something right.  Pictures of You is playing to sold-out houses and now QUACK! is following suit.  It’s awesome!!Pictures of You - Frank and Janet in bed

On Pictures of You, CUE writes: “This is a powerfully intense drama…Sound and light are ingeniously exploited to create the atmosphere which kept the audience spellbound by a gripping display of incredible acting for more than an hour.  This team are experienced entertainers, and a must see for all festinos.” and calls the show “captivating…whimsical…a dainty delicacy, to be cradled, adored, and treasured”.

And if you didn’t get a chance to see it in Grahamstown, don’t panic!  You can catch it at the Witness Hilton Arts Festival in September.

Q official pic long QUACK! is making waves too, also playing to sold-out houses.  It might not be perfect but it is capturing imaginations and everyone seems to agree that it is heading for great things.

CUE says: “A new offering from Khulumakahle – and another success.  Join the talented performers in an afro-noir story which requires no words, and start to listen with your eyes as the physical vocabulary and soundscape capture your imagination.  This is fresh, exciting theatre – different from anything you’ve seen before.”

      He he he! Are you doing the “I Told You So” Dance all the way from South Africa?! Thanks for the message, Jesse. It sound so lame for me to say that we are SO glad to have you on board as well, but it’s true. And it would appear that we are going to have to look at a way to get your set over here to the USA as we have been invited to tour here in 2010 with QUACK! But shhhhh…that’s a sneak preview for you!

      Love from DC
