Theatre Group Heart proudly presents a new comedy/drama production by Grant Jacobs about a couple caught up in a colourful catastrophe entitled Colour Me In. The Socialite finds out more…
Colour Me In explores relationship dynamics, interracial relationships and what actually lies beneath the surface of these seemingly comic arguments that frequently come up in between couples in this day and age.
Lindy is a young-up-and-coming business woman. She’s taken the liberty of arranging a couples’ counselling session for her and husband-to-be, the not-convinced Simon. The couple arrive at what looks like a yoga class for two but soon dissolves from deep breathing to a shoe-throwing, screaming match. They go through painful confrontation, deliberately digging up dirt on each other and playing the blame-game until they simultaneously run into a wall.
“Is this a race thing?” Simon asks shyly. “No…Is this a race thing?” Lindy asks questionably.
Where do you stand with interracial relationships?
Funnily enough, Simon and Lindy aren’t sure either. Join them as they go from ridiculous arguments which you may find all too familiar, to the core of what may destroy their relationship.
Starring two of Durban’s freshest talents, Caitlin Kilburn who has just arrived back from a stint in Seoul, where she played Sheila in Day In The Death Of Joe Egg but Durban audience’s may remember her most from her unforgettable performance as Aldonza in Man Of La Mancha.
