Hi, my name is Andre Gerber. I don't really know what I should say about myself, so let me start with what is applicable to this forum:

I live in South Africa - in Cape Town. I am studying a BDram degree (Drama) at Stellenbosch University. I enjoy writing and I have written a few plays, but I find it difficult to hand my plays over to other directors. I am specializing in directing myself, so I like to read new things to perform. I love plays that are really far-out and different - sometimes even completely removed from reality. I find them more interesting than something I can look down the street to watch. I am here because I wish to expand my horizons in terms of writing.

Anyway, I don't really know what else there is to say. lol.

Welcome, Andre.

Don't be so afraid.  After the actors read through the first play I had produced, the director said, "Okay, now, do you want to know what this play is all about?"  There was just myself, and the two actors.  "Right,"  I though,  "you tell them what my play is all about."

And he did.  Better than I could have, and saw things in it I hadn't realized I had in there.  The best, is when someone else has a passion for your work.  Listening to the director, the actors, the crew, who all have an investment in your play, that's when it become wonderful.

Trust, Andre.  Trust.

Paddy
