2018 Standard Bank Ovation winner Silkworm is told through the eyes of the at once gregarious and socially awkward Georgina. Georgina is about to have the single most important day of her life. On this day, she takes the audience on a journey that reveals how the small things are, ultimately, big things.

    Saw it last year, just seen it this year and the show and Taryn Bennett just get better and better. Another one you miss at your peril.

    It is the most exceptional piece of theatre I have seen in a long, long time. Taryn Bennett had the audience eating out of the palm of her hand. Enchanting, entertaining and absorbing theatre out of the top draw. Standing ovation!!!

    This is a superb show, Taryn Bennett is an immense talent. You can see the show’s structure comes from improvisation as she makes an advantage of all participation. A clown has the ability for humour and pathos which she achieves effortlessly. A must see!

    This delightful piece combines the techniques of clowning, improvisation ad delightful characterization to surprise and charm the audience. A beautifully crafted piece of theater.

    Brilliant, well written, constructed and staged. Mesmerising acting. Moving and funny. Highly recommended.
