When Swallows Cry, a play by Mike van Graan

Thu, 2018-02-01 20:00 to Sat, 2018-02-24 20:00
"This is sit on the edge of your seat fare.... there is a thriller element which propels each story along. It could be you - locked up in a small room, muzzled and gasping for your life," writes Robyn Cohen of Weekend Argus of When Swallows Cry, the powerful play by Mike van Graan currently showing at the Baxter Theatre Flipside. Read more... “Van Graan delivers a masterful evocation of migrating, crossing borders and seeking refuge." Directed by Lesedi Job and with UCT alumni Marty Kintu and Kai Luke Brümmer, as well as Mbulelo Grootboom in the cast, When Swallows Cry is a hard-hitting and powerful trilogy of playlets that explores the inequities and layered complexities of contemporary global mobility, particularly from African perspectives. “An unpretentious experience — it is stripped to the essentials and one is forced to focus on the human lives touched by a deeply unjust system.” - Joshua Carstens, Theatre critic.
