Amy's View, described as playwright David Hare’s masterpiece, opens at the Masque Theatre on Friday the 5th of July. Sir David Hare is one of Britain's most internationally performed playwrights. After a sold-out season at the National Theatre, Amy's View transferred to the West End, and later to Broadway, earning widespread critical acclaim for Judi Dench in the role of the mother.
A well-known West End actress receives a visit from her daughter Amy and her new boyfriend, an aspiring film director. This sets in motion events which only fully come into shape sixteen years later. A fascinating insight into three main characters and how lack of communication can cause so much confusion! The play is directed by the multi-award winning Brenda Gray (Best Director - Marvin's Room) featuring Hannah Klaassens as Amy, Anton Schӓfer (Best Supporting Actor - The Sum of Us) as Amy’s boyfriend Dominic and Bernie Jacobs as the mother. The stellar supporting cast includes Dennis Benneyworth (Best Actor - Gaslight, Mixed Couples and Visiting Mr Green), Sheila Inglis (Best Actress -Nunsense) and Gary Green (certificate of excellence - The Odd Couple).
The performance on Wednesday the 10th of July will be in aid of the Chaeli Campaign. The Chaeli Campaign aims to change the life of one disabled child at a time in a significant way, mobilising the minds and bodies of children with disabilities. For more information visit www.chaelicampaign.co.za
