Spiced up with three arguably non-consensual sex scenes the reader and audience are exposed to an avalanche of visual and verbal cliches, tropes, memes and allegories that...in stage form...runs to about 90 minutes. Hipster audiences in SA and on the fringe theater circuit abroad are driven to wild ecstasy as they spot the "deep and meaningfuls" and exclaim at the play's "relevance" to 20 years of post-apartheid angst. It's all part of the game, right?
As a script, it's easy to imagine the work as the winner of a challenge-task assigned to competing syndicates of third-year Arts students at Wits. And deservedly so. For that's about the level at which it sits.
Try this: take out the sex scenes and experience how it instantly feels like cardboard left out the rain.
