I canâ€™t believe it is all over. I think our 12 hour soap-a-thon goes down as one of the best times of my life. And we raised over R12 000 forÂ Rape Crisis. A huge thank you goes out to all our supporters who came, for one episode or more, to Alwin, who deserves special mention as the only audience member to sit through all 12 hours!
We improved our hearts out. Our characters were brilliant, so much â€˜happenedâ€™, there was singing, sex, murder and mistaken identity. We played together as the team of teams. And we did it for 12 hours on the trot. When we were chatting yesterday it turns out that most of us didnâ€™t ever leave the venue; we were either on stage or back stage the entire time. We went into this completely other world, and it was surreal and amazing.
Naturally, we are already thinking about how to do the next one, next year. Watch this space. And if you were there at any part of Tackle Tales, send us feedback.
I miss my character Brick (Bernadese) van Niekerk. I miss her sister Marie-Louise and her foundling baby Breeze. I miss everybody else’s amazing creations and I keep thinking about the many inspirational moments that happened throughout the day. It was awesome.
