Travelling Shots

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Travelling Shots by Paul Slabolepszy is a play made up of seven finely-tuned sketches. The play starts with a revue-type sketch of would-be Aussies and ends with a crisp little lament about the necessity to be anything but South African when one is abroad.
