BLACK MAMBA (article first published : 2006-01-22)

Having just completed a successful eight-week season in Cape Town playing to 80% capacity houses, John van de Ruit and Ben Voss will bring their hilarious two-hander Black Mamba back to home base in KwaZulu-Natal with performances at Hilton.

Written by John van de Ruit, Ben Voss and Greig Coetzee and directed by Murray McGibbon, Black Mamba premiered at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in 2005 and according to Computicket was officially the fastest selling show on the fringe. It has since played to sellout seasons in Durban, Pietermaritzburg and the Witness Hilton Arts Festival 2005. Immediately after Hilton, the duo will embark on a tour of Zimbabwe before going on to London!

The second show of the Mamba series (after the phenomenally successful Green Mamba) Black Mamba back is just as hilarious with a line-up of cleverly scripted satirical sketches. There are no sacred cows in this programme everyone comes in for a basting, including the Minister of Health!

Performances take place at the Hilton College Theatre from January 19 to 21 at 19h30. Tickets R60. All bookings and enquiries on 033 383 0126 or email: theatre@hiltoncollege.com (See review on these pages by now in the Drama Archives section)
