I am looking forward with happy anticipation to an evening at the theatre next week Tuesday. My oldest friend from school days and I are going to see a performance of I Am My Own Wife at the Baxter Studio. It was so popular during its run in July and August, that it has come back for two weeks. And that run has now been extended for a third week, with the final performance on 14 November.
“But,” I can hear you cry, “Haven’t you seen it already?”
“Er… yes… indeed, I have,” I confess, feeling a tad sheepish.
“TWICE, if we’re not mistaken?!”
“Ummm… ye-e-es. …. But it’s such an awesome play, and it’s set in Berlin during the 20th century, and my friend lived and worked in that city for many years, and I just know that she’ll love it!”
“Oh, okay, in that case…”
Anyhooooo, so that’s where I’ll be next Tuesday, glued to my seat, watching my favourite South African stage actor’s riveting performance of a very unusual play.
