THEATRE ON THE 2004 FRINGE (article first published : 2004-06-28)

Classics from Brecht, Shafer and Shakespeare, South African masterpieces from Opperman, Can Themba, Fugard and Krummeck. Seasoned writers and directors rub shoulders with newcomers. All this makes for an exciting theatre programme on the National Arts Festival Fringe in Grahamstown this year.

There's fantasy comedy, physical theatre, hilarity, heartache and a bit of hip-hop - there are politicians, sangomas, heroes and anti-heroes. There are men in tights and tight women in smocks, there's passion, murder, mystery and love. There's lighthearted fun and serious debate, and some superb acting, writing and directing skills on display.

The fringe will host 75 different theatre productions, each and every one of them deserving a standing ovation at the end of their run - some for greatness, others for sheer temerity, courage and belief.

Booking Kits now available from the Standard Bank or www.nafest.co.za Book at Computicket.

The National Arts Festival runs from July 1 to 10 in Grahamstown and is sponsored by the Eastern Cape Government, Standard Bank, The National Lotteries Distribution Trust Fund, SABC and the National Arts Council.
