News/Reviews - Grahamstown Festival News

'Two Women Two Worlds’ is a dynamic performance, devised by the two participants, Val McLane, senior UK actress from the North East of England and Nomhle Nkonyeni, premier South African actress from the Eastern Cape, comparing and contrasting their lives in the two different countries on two different continents.
Together they tell each other and the audience about their customs and their rituals from the choosing of a name to their chosen career paths. In the course of these stories they question each other and the audience; sometimes arguing over their lack of understanding of each other’s culture.

Val McLane is a North East born and bred actor/director/scriptwriter. She worked as a teacher and broadcaster before setting up the Live Theatre in Newcastle with director Geoff Gillham in 1973 and since then she has appeared in numerous theatre, television, film and radio productions.

Nomhle Nkonyeni is a renoned veteran actress who has shared her gift with audiences in Africa and internationally for the past four decades. Her wealth of experience has been gained through her outstanding work as a stage, screen and television actor and director.
