A somewhat grizzly Tim Plewman was found at the Struik stand representing Two Dogs, clad in a mock-animal fur jacket. He seemed to have just stepped out of the cave, though he would prove to be a rather talented caveman.
Plewman gave us more of a performance than a reading from his book Defending the Caveman, performance being what he is most famous for and what the book is about. Although he said “I know this is not a performance stand,” he could not help himself. His dramatic reading told us most clearly of his performance background; the variation in pitch and tone and accentuated accents made it more than just your average reading.
Plewman spoke about his play of the same name which inspired the book; it has seen its 1000th performance come and go! Quite something for a South African production.
Quote of the hour: “The whole idea of the Caveman is the idea of the understanding and love that should exist between men and women”
