Press Release

The Pen takes audiences on a trip into the mind of young playwright, Sipho, in the throes of writing a new play. Affected by writer’s block, the playwright is drawn into a relationship with Thandi, his Muse. Lured into a seductive journey, the boundaries between fantasy and reality become blurred as he begins to live in an increasingly illusionary world dominated by his sexy, assertive writing Goddess. His girlfriend Pinky, innocently drawn into his tender reverie, suffers as she begins to understand the depths of his passion for Thandi.

Pinky’s attempts to resuscitate their romance are frustrated by the fact that, unbeknownst to her, her rival in love is an ethereal siren, the perfect woman, the stuff of every man’s dream. Or is she?

The story is told with great energy and wit and becomes a highly memorable and entertaining comedy of errors.
