Comedy probes our relationship with camera, image and celebrity

21 July 2008

With their fingers firmly on the pulse of contemporary society, Prisch Productions and UCT's Drama Department present a witty, mixed-media comedy that questions what is real in contemporary society.

Poking fun at the delicate white underbelly of the couch potato, while marveling at the speedy fingers of the modern-day techno-geek, click-X-cess takes a comic look at our relationship with camera, image and celebrity in today's fast, consumerism- obsessed world.

Alicia Price and Anne Hirsch met two years ago in their postgraduate programme at UCT. Finding they shared the same sharp sense of humour and desire to comment on their digitised, media-obsessed world, the duo began to collaborate under the name Prisch Productions.

They enjoyed a successful month-long run with their previous collaboration, Face-IT, at the Kalk Bay Theatre earlier this year.

click-X-cess will be showing at the Arena Theatre from 22 to 26 July 2008. The show starts at 20h15. Tickets R35 for adults and R25 for students.
