|“The piece works particularly well in the …versatille space of the Rosebank Theatre…[Roy] Sargeant [director] has not shirked from creating an intimacy between the lovers…”
Tracey Saunders, Cape Times
“Cry Havoc is a play that will break your heart. It’s a soulful journey into forbidden love that should not be missed under any circumstances.”
Written by Tom Coash, CRY HAVOC is an unnerving EAST-WEST love story about a naive British writer and a Egyptian university student who covertly live as lovers. Surrounded by poverty, religious fundamentalism and political repression, these educated, morally centre, yet disenfranchised men pursue divergent paths towards escape and extremism.
Directed by Roy Sargeant with Cameron Robertson as Mohamed, David Viviers as Nicholas and Anthea Thompson as Ms Nevers. Its South African premier was at The Grahamstown Arts Festival in 2013.
