WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE ............
Life in the film industry was never meant to be easy, but when a ruthless director makes his alcoholic friend the subject of his latest feature, tensions snap.
Opening at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, on Friday 20 September is the intriguing, contemporary play A Handful of Friends by David Williamson. This is a cleverly written study of five professional men and women where self-seeking can hide beneath the most cultured surface.
The five university friends meet up again some years after completing their studies. In the interim one of them has made a film cruelly satirising one of the group. This opens a can of worms. The reaction of the others to this betrayal leads to total breakdown of their friendships and lives.
Award winning director Sue Bolton directs this true-to-life drama/comedy for the Constantiaberg Theatre Players. She has chosen five young actors to bring this multi-layered play to vivid life.
A Handful of Friends by David Williamson opens at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, on Friday 20 September and runs until Saturday 28 September, excluding Monday to Wednesday.
