what people are saying…

  • “Bucha comes across as a crazy mix of Eva Peron and Imelda Marcos… energetic, vivid, and compelling” (The Friday Times)
  • “a riveting act.” (THE NEWS)
  • “A modern day lady Macbeth with an eclectic mix of Desperate Housewife.
  • An evening of pure mischief and delectable humour” (INSTEP)
  • “Nimra Bucha’s performance has impressive range. She is coquettish and shrewish, romantic and arrogant, bored and impatient…The punch lines are brimming with sarcasm” (DAWN)

    All the pertinent info is there including where the tickets are available for sale. But it does not say how much the tickets cost. Is this deliberate? Or the author did not think that the general public may want to know this very pertinent information? It would have saved an extra phone call to find out if one can afford to go and see this play.
