Alexander Bar's 'Sillage': Theatre Review

11th May 16

Laura Davidson

Sillage, now playing at the Alexander Bar, is described as a ‘comedy drama’. Whilst a few lines drew knowing smiles, to label it a comedy would be stretching things. What it is, though, is an incredibly powerful study of matriarchy in one white South African family. The play explores a mother’s yearning for her daughter, grown-up and so very busy. She is invited home on the pretext of being required to help pack, a move to a smaller home imminent. The two characters remain nameless throughout, creating space for personal reflection.
