A COOKIE IN THE KITCHEN (article first published : 2005-08-1)

A Cookie in the Kitchen is a one-woman show about life in the new South Africa through the eyes of a subservient suburban South African woman as told by Kumseela Naidoo.

The role of Cookie is played by the effervescent Kumseela Naidoo who recently thrilled audiences in the Comedy Shop and 4 Ding-a-Lings and a Ding. The piece is written and directed by Vivian Moodley.

This is a tale of a typical South African Indian woman who prepares food while her husband drinks and watches football on television with his friends. On this particular Saturday, she is busy in the kitchen while her slob of a husband has a beer in front of the TV and her children play noisily. The play opens with the woman rolling roti and screaming at the children playing offstage. It is another typical day in her life. She flashes back to her life before her wedding night and before her less-than-perfect arranged marriage. She plays multiple characters, including her parents, friends and acquaintances as she unfolds the story of her life.

A Cookie in the Kitchen runs at Catalina Theatre from August 2 to 14 nightly at 20h00 (18h00 on Sundays).

Tickets R60 (R50 pensioner and students). To book call Thandeka or Janice on 031 305 6889. For block booking discounts and charity fundraisers call Glenda on 031 305 7612.
