Can You Choose Who You Love?
POPArt Theatre in Maboneng has garnered a favourable reputation of hosting fringe theatre and giving a platform for aspiring playwrights, directors and actors. This October proves to be no exception.
From the 3rd to the 5th of October the theatre will be staging the debut play of lawyer turned film actor and playwright, Michael Lawrence Potter “Looking for Audrey”.
An earnest and humorous 3-act play detailing the story of Mark (played by Potter), a 20-something who seems to be in a perpetual string of short-lived relationships that end in disaster. The only constant in Marks’ otherwise chaotic life is his best friend Annie- an outspoken, intelligent bombshell in the midst of her own identity crisis, played with wry wit and genuine charm by Chanel Du Toit.
Mark decides that he is not going to trust fate or love to lead him to the woman of his dreams. He instead creates a test to determine if someone is compatible with him based on how they measure up to his favourite actress (and crush) Audrey Hepburn- starlet of 1960’s cinema.
Equal parts sarcastic and sincere this new comedy addresses the millennial struggles of love, discrimination, depression, delusion and identity all while appealing to the human condition of romance and sentimentality.
