Laugh yourself silly at a record-breaking New York comedy.
LINE, a one-act comedy by Israel Horovitz, is the longest-running play in New York, now brought to Cape Town for the very first time by Sugar-daddy Theatre Co.
This absurdist-style play centers on five people waiting in a queue, none of them seemingly know what they are waiting for, but all are desperate to get first place in line. The drama unravels as they squabble, trick, fight, and betray each other to get ahead. It is a character-driven play making a profound statement about society and human behaviour.
‘Stephen’, played by Bjorn Steinbach, is the flamboyant ‘wannabe’ genius who always seems to get first in line. Leon Clingman, who at one time directed LINE in New York, plays ‘Flemming’, a dim-witted baseball fan. Marlisa Doubell portrays ‘Molly’, a woman who uses her sexuality to get ahead, while Gavin Werner plays her tormented husband, ‘Arnall’. Aidan Whytock plays the shady ‘Dolan’. Award-winning director Yvonne Copley heads the team.
Written by the acclaimed Jewish-American playwright of over 70 plays, many of which have been translated and performed worldwide, Israel Horovitz’s LINE is currently in its record-breaking 38th year at the 13th Street Repertory Theatre in New York.
Running from 18 – 28 April 2012 at the Little Theatre, Orange Street.
Tickets: R80 for adults, R60 for students and pensioners (age restriction 2 – 18), available through www.computicket.com.
