Curtain rises again on The Fall

The Fall returns to the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio for a short season, until Thursday September 21.

The play is a collaborative piece of workshop theatre devised by seven postgraduate drama students during the #RhodesMustFall, #FeesMustFall and subsequent student movement demonstrations.

It focuses on race, class, gender, sexism, colonialism and ideologies of patriarchy.

The play does not offer solutions to the questions raised but hopes to create and nurture dialogue.

The production is fresh from its success at the Edinburgh Assembly Fringe Festival in Scotland, where it won two prestigious awards, earned five-star reviews and standing ovations throughout.

Within the first week of the festival, The Fall received the Scotsman Fringe First Award designed to encourage performers to bring new work to Edinburgh. Two days later, the cast received The Edinburgh Stage acting award, beating more than 200 shows which were analysed and considered.
