A young, local creative team - under popular Durban theatre actor/director Radwinn Van Wyk – is doing great things.

Tell Me How You Feel is described a heart-moving musical that reveals the life of a young man named Philip in pursuit of his dreams. Philip has grown up without his parents and lives with his grandmother in a small township flat in Sydenham. In the midst of poverty and hardships, he desires to be a businessman and performance artist. He puts his artistic talents to use and in pursuit of his dreams he meets the love of his life. Just when things seem to be going good for Philip and his new girlfriend, disaster strikes. He is faced with some shocking truths that challenge him to the point of nearly giving up.

Tell Me How You Feel is a play that exemplifies the will to hope, to dream, to believe and love. The storyline is enhanced with music, modern dance, comedy and some soul slam poetry that reveals a side to our humanity that we all too often are afraid to face. It’s a journey of truth that soaks the human heart in a melting pot of emotions. With a wholesome meaning in the message Tell Me How You Feel reflects light into a world that is too often shadowed by secrets in the dark.

Tell Me How You Feel is being staged at Bechet High School, 34 Barns Road in Sydenham, on May 5 and 6 at 19h30 and on May 7 at 15h00. Tickets R100 (children under 12 half price) booked through
