The Inconvenience Of Wings

Following its resounding international success Lara Foot’s award-winning The Inconvenience of Wings returns to the Baxter. Andrew Buckland stars as Paul, husband to Sara (performed by Jennifer Steyn), who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She is compulsive, alive and hates women who know how to make cupcakes. Paul is on a mission to find a cure for her afflictions and befriends and consults with Professor James (played by Mncedisi Shabangu) who quietly tries to save him from the inconvenience of his wings. The powerful and poignant drama about friendship, dysfunction, addiction and angels makes for compelling viewing with burning contemporary themes and its devastating effect on the family. Set in a landscape of memory and dreams this play cuts close to the bone for anyone who has suffered mental illness themselves, or has lived with someone who is afflicted. Written and directed by Lara Foot CAST Jennifer Steyn, Andrew Buckland & Mncedisi Shabangu.
