"Last Rounds". The return.

It's still 2am. The final bell for last orders has been rung. The Hopeless / Modern Romantic sits in the dark bar, swilling her whiskey, watching the door for him. She’s just a girl, sitting in a bar, waiting for a boy...

Back Upstairs after a sell out season in May, "Last Rounds" is a biting look at love, whiskey, and good music. Written and directed by Tara Notcutt (The Three Little Pigs and ...miskien) and featuring the lovely Rebecca Makin-Taylor (Expectant, The Kingmakers).

"so honest it's raw" - Artsblog
"captivating theatre … an intelligent blend of satire and sentiment."
- The Cape Argus ★★★★

"… as truthful as one can be without estranging all friends, family, acquaintances and former lovers."
- Westcape News

"Makin-Taylor portrays the flawed 20-something Modern Romantic to perfection"
- Your LMG

Rebecca graduated in 2011 from UCT, and has appeared in The Verbalists and The Kingmakers, written and directed by Louis Viljoen, and Expectant, written and directed by Penny Youngleson which travelled to Amsterdam and the Market Theatre. Tired of men, and women, asking her to give private narrations of “50 Shades Of Grey” (a book she has yet read) Rebecca quit waitressing and now works as a voice coach and voice artist dubbing Iranian sitcoms and films into English.

Tara graduated from UCT in 2008 and has been working hard, in the dark of many theatres, ever since. She is a multi award-winning director, and has had plays perform on three continents (“...miskien”, “The Three Little Pigs” and “Illusive”). She likes long walks on the beach in the rain, and when she is not working, she can be found shoving R2 coins into the jukebox at the Kimberley Hotel.
