"If it sounds dark, it is undeniably so. But it's also extremely funny: young playwright and director Ameera Conrad has a bright future ahead of her. Her writing is whip-smart, and her vision is brought to life with cracking energy by her equally youthful cast. The production takes satirical aim at practically everyone in South Africa, from the accent-shifting faux-revolutionaries to hand-wringing white people, but perhaps its sharpest barbs are reserved for the vapidity of Twitter activists." Rebecca Davis, Daily Maverick

Ameera Conrad is also co-curator, co-writer and performer in "The Fall", which won a Scotsman Fringe First Award for Writing at the Edinburgh Festival, The Stage's Ensemble Award for Acting, and was shortlisted for the Amnesty International Award for Human Rights in 2017.
