Kiss of the Spider Woman at The Baxter Theatre
5 June 2021 - 19 June 2021
“Originally written in Spanish in 1972, Manuel Puig’s Kiss of the Spider Woman has captured the attention of audiences for its romantic drama, political outcry, and postmodern style portrayed through its two characters, Molina and Valentin. The plot follows two [cellmates] that pass time incarcerated in an Argentine prison by remembering and reinventing movies. What at first seems a simple and straightforward, if not lackadaisical story of two people who appear opposites – the romantic and the revolutionary – is revealed to be a story of political intrigue and double-crossing.” Smith, B.V. (2015).
With: Wessel Pretorius & Mbulelo Grootboom | Director: Sylvaine Strike | Lighting: Mannie Manim | Set and Costume Design: Wolf Britz | Music: Brendan Jury
