James Cairns plays four guys in Dirt: the nerdy Wayne; down-to-earth Grant, a new father, and the sex-driven Sam, all linked by one central person, Jerry. Oh yes, and a dog.
Nick Warren’s play takes us on a journey with these old friends. Their road trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town is fraught with tension, riddled with humour and filled with emotion. Cairns’s extraordinary ability to change his vocal technique and twist his facial features to portray each character captivates the audience throughout. Especially when he plays the dog.
