Tracy Going's 'Brutal Legacy' adapted into theatre production
The adaptation of former television anchor and radio personality Tracy Going's book Brutal Legacy, has made it to Sandton’s Auto & General Theatre on the Square.
The play inspired by her memoirs - detailing the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father and later her partner, officially premiered on Wednesday this week.
The show has been directed and adapted by award-winning theatre maker Lesedi Job with a cast including _Scandal _TV star Natasha Sutherland, Charlie Bougenon and Jessica Wolhuter.
Sutherland and Job joined Eusebius McKaiser on the show to talk about the production.
Lesedi and I wanted to stay true to Tracy and the spirit of the story and to honour her. So the play is an amazing mix of adhering to the technicality of it, understanding the psychology behind it which is something that Lesedi as a director is very keen to try and instill on the actors. You are in a way facilitating the audience's journey.Natasha Sutherland, Actress - Scandal
She was that quintessential public figure in the journalism space with the crossover appeal. I remember just listening to Tracy talk about her book and experience, it was a part of her that did not hold herself as a victim. It was her going, I have survived, I am putting it out there and I have overcome this. In telling the story there is a need to get women to get out of these difficult relationships...Lesedi Job, Director
