WOZA ALBERT! (article first published : 2004-05-16)

With permission from DALRO, a production of the highly successful play Woza Albert! will be staged at Durban High School this month. 10 years after democracy, the text is still relevant and accessible and remains as a Speech and Drama Grade 12 setwork in KwaZulu-Natal.

Written by Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema, Barney Simon in 1979, Woza Albert! is a satire that imagines the second coming of Christ in apartheid-ridden South Africa. The play opened to critical acclaim at Johannesburg’s Market Theatre and toured in Europe and America. Acknowledged as one of the groundbreaking plays to come out of apartheid South Africa, it has won more than 20 prestigious awards worldwide.

Directed by drama educator, Shaun Gray, the DHS cast consists of Namhla Mzolo (Grade 12) and Thabani Sibiya (Grade 10). The production will run in the DHS hall from June 8 to 11 at 19h30. TIckets R20 booked on 031 277 1500 (school hours).
