'To House is an important piece of theatre; in it people voice opinions that are uncomfortable and edgy. The cathartic and therapeutic value of hearing these things said aloud in a public place is part of our essential healing process and proves, once again, that art has the ability to go where angels fear to tread.' Daily News, Durban 'Ashwin Singh's To House deals with alliances and conflicts between Black, White and Indian characters involved in a sectional title scheme - the intricate plot holds the attention' Independent on Sunday 'Singh's beautifully crafted play is rich in humour and in sadness, peppered with witty one-liners and moving insights. Here is a microcosm of the endearing foibles and extraordinary resilience of a community under threat from all angles.' ArtSmart, South Africa
