BLACK MAMBA FOR HILTON (article first published : 2005-12-16)

The Hilton College Theatre opens its 2006 season with the venomous comedy, Black Mamba.

Directed by Murray McGibbon, it premiered at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and was judged by Computicket as the fastest selling show on the Fringe. It has since played to sell-out seasons in Durban, Pietermaritzburg and the Witness Hilton Arts Festival. The boys are about to embark on an 8 week season at the Baxter Theatre centre in Cape Town before returning to Hilton College for a short season before leaving for a tour of Zimbabwe. Catch the Mambas before Mugabe does!

Highlights of Black Mamba include a 15-minute illustrated History of South Africa which spans 600 years of conquering and re-conquering; a brilliant quiz show called the Missing Link; and a grilling of the Minister of Health. Starring Ben Voss and John van de Ruit, this is hilarious, fast paced, bitingly clever satire. Written by the actors with Greig Coetzee, Black Mamba was joint winner of the Durban Theatre Award for Best Script

Black Mamba runs from January 19 to 2 at 19h30 with an extra performance at 15h00 on January 21. Book on 033 383 0126 or theatre@hiltoncollege.com
