One of the country's foremost theatre companies, Magnet Theatre is currently staging I Turned Away and She Was Gone, directed by the company's co-founder, Professor Mark Fleishman from UCT Department of Drama.

UCT alumnus Jennie Reznek wrote and stars in the production which is her first solo show in two decades. It explores interpersonal connections, the relationship with self and examines women's rites of passage, from young girl to woman.

Reznek says, "I Turned Away and She Was Gone is a powerful story for both males and females, capturing the delicate and beautiful cycle of life."

The play, which had its premiere on 18 February, runs Wednesdays to Saturdays at 20h00 until 14 March 2015. Bookings can be made online at www.computicket.com or at any Shoprite Checkers outlet. Tickets are also available at the Magnet Theatre box office.
