You go, my boyyys!
Alright, it’s time for me to blow the Rhodes horn and just say how proud I am of the Rhodes performers who took part in Beyond Therapy, a comedic collab between Rhodes and Wits Universities.
Unbeknown to me until recently, there has been a long-standing feud between the Rhodes and Wits Drama Departments. I’m not sure why, but it probably has something to do with sex and drugs. In this piece, which was created in the two weeks between university closing and Fest starting, I really think the Rhodes and Wits performers created a vibe to be envied. The performers were all very much in sync with each other, and if there were any mishaps, I certainly didn’t notice any. Although the first few minutes started off tentatively, they soon picked up the energy and carried the audience into their crazy world without holding back.
We laughed during the entire piece, and the room was filled with enthusiasm and glee, despite the small audience. It’s the kind of play you steal quotes from, and add them to the Fave Quotes section of your Facebook profile. It’s the kinds of facial expressions you think of at random moments and snort out loud.
Thank you, to both Rhodes and Wits, for making us fear we would pee in our seats from laughing too hard. And to the Wits kids, you all put on a great show, especially Vicky Binns! Hoping to see more Rhodes/Wits collabs in the future.
