THE HUNGRY (article first published : 2006-03-7)

March sees the premiere of The Hungry, a vibrant new South African play presented by Sue Clarence Promotions in association with the Playhouse Company in Durban.

This important new production marks the first of the Playhouse Company's 2006 two-production seasons of New Stages, representing cutting edge theatre from the New South Africa.

This exciting theatrical journey makes use of physical theatre and innovative musical instruments. It will be performed by the internationally-acclaimed performance duo, Bheki Mkhwane and Ellis Pearson, who team here for the first time with one of South Africa's legendary jazz maestros, Ndikho Xaba.

Expect a unique and interactive "theatre-in-the-round" experience. A circle has been drawn, Sinakho village has gathered to perform their annual ritual ceremony. But, look! A stranger has arrived and the village will never be the same again.

The Hungry runs in the Playhouse Loft from March 10 to 12 for four performances: Friday and Saturday at19h30 (Saturday and Sunday matinees at 15h00).

Following its premiere staging at the Playhouse, the production transfers to Johannesburg's Market Theatre for a six week season from April 3 to May 20.

Booking for The Hungry performances in Durban through Computicket on 083 915 8000 or the Playhouse Dial-A-Seat on 031- 369 9596 or 031-369 9540.
