Get ready to experience a life-changing theatre piece when In the Wings runs at the Joburg Theatre from the 8 to 15 September.
The play explores the relationships between a mother and her daughters - one a confused matriculant and the other a feisty cerebral palsied teen who is often the one to offer the most insight in a world that makes little sense.
Written and directed by Jared Kruger, who is the arts and culture program coordinator at the Chaeli Campaign, In the Wings has been described as being "touching and relatable" as well as "captivating and moving" by audiences

The story was written and workshopped for the Chaeli Campaign, a phenomenal organisation which works to change the lives of both disabled and able-bodied people. Chaeli Mycroft was the winner of the International Children's Peace Prize 2011 for her commitment to the rights of children with disabilities in South Africa.
The seventeen-year-old Kath is charmingly portrayed by Danieyela Rodin whose character is based on Chaeli Mycroft. Aside from her physical challenges, Kath, like any other teenager is faced with the arousal of lustful desires and the hope of finding love.
The show has a wide audience appeal and is suited to both young audiences and adults alike.
The cast: Bo Petersen (mom); Danieyella Rodin (Kath); Madele Vermaak (Jo) and Jaques de Silva who plays Jay, a young rugby coach who has a romantic interest in Jo.
In the Wings is at space.com at the Joburg Theatre from 8 to 15 September 2012.
