I missed it last time round and am determined not to do so again

Craig Higginson’s Girl in the Yellow Dress returns to the Market Theatre

Girl Yellow dressCraig Higginson’s  The Girl in the Yellow Dress  returns to the Market Theatre on 27th Sept.  It is described in the press release as ‘part psychological thriller and part a State of the Nation analysis’.  The synposis continues: ‘It is set in contemporary Paris and deals with the exchanges between Celia, a beautiful English teacher in her late twenties, and Pierre, her younger French-Congolese pupil. Brimming with humour, rage and longing, this internationally celebrated South African play provides a minute exploration of an increasingly hazardous romantic entanglement and an insight into some of the tensions between the ‘first’ and ‘third’ worlds.

It had rave reviews so will definitely not miss it this time.
