Facebook Event
After a successful run at the Cape Town Fringe Festival, Harold Pinter's 'Ashes to Ashes' comes to Alexander Bar.

On a summer evening, Rebecca recalls a sadomasochistic ritual between her and a past over. An intrigued Devlin proceeds to interrogate her in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. She must revoke her repressed past to face her troubled present while his suspicions grow and his desire to secure and control their future is threatened by her enigmatic recollections.

How do we live in the present if we repress past atrocities?
"Elderkin – who makes a welcome return to serious roles after a recent run of comedic performances – is cold, wry and quietly domineering. Norton’s relaxed delivery is at masterful odds with the underlying intensity of her experience" - Carla Lever, The Daily Maverick
