Dear Wimpie,I saw a most delightful – that is a most inappropriate choice of word for a play that had me in stitches this evening. What did I see – from Platfrom9 to Park Station. The tale is one of the Cape to JHB, infused with humour, mostly in Afrikaans. I understood a great part of it, but since it was so authentic, I missed most of the local, Afrikaans expressions. One thing I loved was how much homo-eroticism there was between the different male characters. I think they tried to statirise machoismo in Cape Town and they did a pretty good job.
On each stop between Cape Town and Park Station, the two protagonists, Theo and his friend met a motley of different characters. Yet they play all the parts – it was a two man show.
I now, am going to try and visualize my own thesis journey. Today I tried to do some result, but I did not go far. Tomorrow I begin my introduction. After mass in the morning.
Good night my dear friend and too bad you are going back to darkness.
