The study of humanity and the complexity of emotion has been an interest of academics for years. From why you tear up when your favourite character gets killed off in a movie to the reason you chose to snoop through your partners emails when he wasn’t looking. People are funny creatures who are capable of good, bad and everything else in-between; this is the sentiment of today’s Groupon: a ticket to see world renowned theatre play The Mercy Seat for R30.
The Mercy Seat, starring well-known actors Lee-Anne Summers and Bjorn Steinbach, is set on September 12 in New York City- the day after the fatal attack on the World Trade Centre. The play concerns Ben (Steinbach), a man who worked at the World Trade Centre but was away from the office during the attack with his mistress Abby (Summers), who is also his boss. Expecting that his family believes that he was killed in the towers' collapse, Ben contemplates using the tragedy to run away and start a new life with his lover. Written by esteemed playwright Neil LaBute and directed by Matthew Wild, The Mercy Seat will be gracing South African audiences for the very first time and is surely not one to be missed.
The play will be performed at the Nassau Theatre at Grooteschuur High School and guarantees to transcend you into the mind-set of two lovers moving heaven and earth to be together. This Groupon is redeemable on various nights - from 25 to 28 July 2011 so invite your friends to also buy today’s Groupon and make this a true night out at the theatre. You could also chose to see The Mercy Seat more than once as it will surely be a play worth seeing again and again.
"There is no playwright on the planet these days who is writing better than Neil LaBute, whose magnificent new play, The Mercy Seat, only goes to prove that it's always darkest before its totally black...” – this is only one of many positive reviews about this ground-breaking play. This Groupon allows you to take a journey and peer into the human soul to see it in all its guts and glory.
Theatre fact: A playwright in Vienna, on the opening night of his one-man-play “Drinking ice tea where the eagles fly” dressed up as an eagle sipping ice tea to ukulele music. His show received rave reviews and he went on to do a world tour before retiring in the South of France.
