POPULAR POPCORN (article first published : 2000-06-3)

Still running at the Kwasuka Theatre until June 11 is KickstArt Theatreís highly successful production of Ben Elton's smash-hit, pacy comedy-thriller Popcorn (see review in this section). The production has played to consistently good houses since it opened, proving director Greg King correct in his belief that there is still an audience in Durban prepared to go to good theatre.

Popcorn is a satire of hard-hitting movies that both thrill, shock and titillate. Itís sexy, startling and stylish and poses some serious questions about the glamorisation of violence in the media. Ben Elton is best known locally as the writer of the TV comedy series Thin Blue Line and co-writer with Richard Curtis of Black Adder both starring Rowan Atkinson of Mr Bean fame. Early booking at Computicket is advisable.
