(Daniel Levi & Lerato Xaba)

Blank Canvas Productions is to present its new production, Saving Grace, at Seabrooke’s Theatre at DHS next month. Founded in 2015 Blank Canvas Productions is an independent theatre company. BCP aims to create original work and stage it. Their two previous productions at the same venue last year were It’s Not Your Fault! and Love?

Written by James Jooste and co-directed by Jooste and Carey Swan, Saving Grace poses the question - What happens when life takes everything you love away from you?

When a freak-accident takes the life of Harriet, she enlists her best friend Grace to take care of her granddaughter Zoe. At first, these two don't see eye to eye whatsoever. Over time, the two learn more about each other and bond over their dark pasts. Zoe eventually meets Parker, a vagabond by choice.

At the height of their happiness, life comes crashing down around them. It's not about how you fall. It's about how you pick yourself back up.

Saving Grace features Lerato Xaba as Zoe Lawrence; Jill Sysum as Grace Harrison and Daniel Levi as Parker Parker. Sound and lighting is by Dylan Jooste.

Performances at Seabrooke’s Theatre at Durban High School run from September 7 to 17 with shows from September 7 to 9 and 12 to 16 at 19h30 and on September 10 and 17 at 15h00. (No performance on September 11)
