Adventure of Who
Theatre for Children & Young People / Victoria Theatre

This 2023 Standard Bank Ovation Award winning production is an enchanting escapade for all ages: A child on a magical quest to find a name in a world of whimsical characters and hidden secrets.

Adventure of Who, directed by Aaron Mcilroy, written and performed by Kaylee Mcilroy, takes the audience on a journey of self-discovery. "Toss in a dash of existential crisis mixed with a colourful display of self-discovery, it is a welcome escape to a world of hidden secrets and fun quests. Fantasy, childhood intrigue and mythical landscapes are expertly brought together in a cohesive narrative, coupled with colourful motifs and enchanting imagery. Adventure of Who gives a glimpse into the gnawing question of “who am I?”, which is skilfully answered and deserves a wholehearted nod. Mcilroy puts on a stellar performance and her storytelling abilities do not go unnoticed. Don’t miss Adventure of Who." - Devon Koen, The Herald Port Elizabeth, (2023)
