The scenes focus on subjects they know very well - dating, appearances, egos, fads, crushes, breaking rules, broken hearts, failing grades, embarrassing moments and much more. These are realistic scenes that help the teen audience and performers laugh at themselves. They are perfect for classroom practice or an evening of entertainment.

Prinsloo Versus (Afrikaans, Paperback): Adriaan Meyer Prinsloo Versus (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Adriaan Meyer
R182 Discovery Miles 1 820 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Koos Prinsloo, wat in 1994 in die ouderdom van 37 jaar oorlede is, kan met reg as ’n James Dean van die Afrikaanse letterkunde beskou word: ’n ikoniese figuur wat te vinnig, te gevaarlik geleef en te vroeg gesterf het. Byna drie dekades n die verskyning van sy eerste bundel en vyftien jaar n sy dood, eggo sy stem steeds oor die grense van sy tyd en oeuvre heen – en dis in hierdie weerklank wat die toneelstuk Prinsloo Versus gestalte vind.

Prinsloo versus is nie ’n elegie aan Koos nie, maar die postmoderne vergestalting van ’n persoonlike tragedie, uitgespeel op private en openbare; persoonlike en artistieke slagvelde. Dis ’n veelvlakkige collage oor ’n kunstenaar wie se lewe en werk kwalik met ’n suikerlagie bedek kon word; wat gerebelleer het teen ’n patriargale kultuur en ’n diep weersin in alle vorme van outoriteit getoon het.

Soos ’n briefskrywer in die Burger van 24 Oktober 2003 op die eerste vertoning van die stuk gereageer het: “Ek kon nie anders as om te dink dat Koos, waar hy ook al is, met ’n sardoniese glimlaggie sit en kyk na di stuk nie.”

I want to tell you a story. And it's true. That's what makes it a good fucking story, right, 'cause all the best stories are true. Fleet Street. 1969. The Sun rises. James Graham's ruthless, red-topped play leads with the birth of this country's most influential newspaper - when a young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch asked the impossible and launched its first editor's quest, against all odds, to give the people what they want. Ink premiered at the Almeida Theatre in London before transferring to the West End and later Broadway. It was nominated for both the Olivier and Tony Award for Best New Play.

Aantrekkingskrag - 'n Drama vir die Verhoog (Afrikaans, Paperback): Deon Opperman Aantrekkingskrag - 'n Drama vir die Verhoog (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Deon Opperman
R153 Discovery Miles 1 530 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Aantrekkingskrag is 'n kosmiese wet wat sowel vir hemelligame as vir mense geld. Deon Opperman buit hierdie volgehoue metafoor op 'n verbluffende wyse uit in 'n meesleurende drama oor die liefde. Vyf mense word een laatnag, n 'n opvoering van Hamlet, gekonfronteer met hulle bestaan en verraad teenoor mekaar. Die wrelde van die wetenskap en die kuns word aanvanklik met mekaar gekontrasteer, maar ten slotte versoen in die volgende insig: 'Religie is so onwetenskaplik, maar elke religie op aarde het tot die besef gekom: God is liefde. Liefde - alomteenwoordig soos die aantrekkingskrag tussen alles in die heelal, so onkenbaar soos 'n atoom, en so seker soos die spoed van lig.'

"A tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their 30s ... as engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last." New York Times From the moment that Becky arrives overdressed for her blind date with straight-talking Max, it's clear the evening won't go to plan. In the immediate fallout, Becky becomes an object of devotion for her boss Andrew, who appears to have a fetish for vulnerable women. In turn, Andrew's wife Suzanna turns to her step-brother Max for comfort, and their mutual desire begins to resurface. A biting American comedy with sharp, witty dialogue about ambition, the cost of being truthful, and the perils of a blind date.

In hierdie drama word die leser/gehoor gekonfronteer met die gevolge van keuses waarmee bykans alle Suid-Afrikaners kan identifiseer: kwessies soos emigrasie, die behoud van bande met die geboorteland, nagevolge van die Angolese bosoorlog, moorde op bejaardes en sosiale onsekerhede as gevolg van kriminele geweld. Hiermee gee Opperman dramaties gestalte aan die gedagte dat die persoonlike dikwels 'n politieke strekking het. Ook ander verwysingsraamwerke tree na vore, waaronder die invloed van die geskiedenis en die soeke na identiteit.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire is the tale of a catastrophic confrontation between fantasy and reality, embodied in the characters of Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Arthur Miller. 'I have always depended on the kindness of strangers' Fading southern belle Blanche DuBois is adrift in the modern world. When she arrives to stay with her sister Stella in a crowded, boisterous corner of New Orleans, her delusions of grandeur bring her into conflict with Stella's crude, brutish husband Stanley Kowalski. Eventually their violent collision course causes Blanche's fragile sense of identity to crumble, threatening to destroy her sanity and her one chance of happiness. Tennessee Williams's steamy and shocking landmark drama, recreated as the immortal film starring Marlon Brando, is one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century. Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) was born in Columbus, Mississippi. When his father, a travelling salesman, moved with his family to St Louis some years later, both he and his sister found it impossible to settle down to city life. He entered college during the Depression and left after a couple of years to take a clerical job in a shoe company. He stayed there for two years, spending the evenings writing. He received a Rockefeller Fellowship in 1940 for his play Battle of Angels, and he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1948 and 1955. Among his many other plays Penguin have published The Glass Menagerie (1944), The Rose Tattoo (1951), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), Sweet Bird of Youth (1959), The Night of the Iguana (1961), and Small Craft Warnings (1972). If you enjoyed A Streetcar Named Desire, you might like The Glass Menagerie, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

A reduced, simplified dialogue version of the Original Text for a fast-paced read. Two young gentlemen living in 1890's England use imaginary friends to inject some excitement into their seemingly dull lives. Jack Worthing invents a brother, "Ernest", whom he pretends to be in order to visit his beloved Gwendolen in the city. Meanwhile, friend Algy Moncrieff uses the name "Ernest" while visiting Jack's beautiful young ward, Cecily in the country. Much confusion ensues as the two women find out they have been deceived by their "Ernests". Some would call this a society comedy; others, a Victorian farce. Regardless of the term used, this full colour graphic novel captures the era effortlessly. With an intricate attention to detail, wonderful characterisation and dramatically expressive and humorous artwork, this really is a graphic novel to cherish.
