Satin and Tweed
Satin and Tweed is a two-hander piece by Irish-South African writer Frank O'Hagan
The original text
A documentary play that contrasts the lives and works of the Irish playwrights Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw, it comprises excerpts from many of their best works. The performances require quick changes of characterisation and costume.
The play became an enormous success, played several seasons in Durban, toured the province and later played in Cape Town and Johannesburg with equal acclaim.
