Masque Theatre colour poster webPlaywrights Mary Orr and Reginald Denham, directed by Celia Musikanth

As per Once Upon a screen , a classic film blog, this play is “An engrossing and revealing “inside” story of life in New York’s theatre world, told in terms of an unscrupulous ingénue’s rise to Broadway stardom.  It’s interesting from the onset.  Concise, humorous and yet its story is told with depth and intrigue.  The story it depicts is timeless as are the characters and situations they find themselves in.”

Tickets are R100, include a glass of wine and finger food. SOLD OUT – THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

The Masque Theatre is in Muizenberg.  Click here to check out their website.
