THE LOVE OF THE NIGHTINGALE (article first published : 2000-08-23)

The Love of the Nightingale by Timberlake Wertenbaker is a fascinating mixture of myth, history and drama. Although set in ancient Greece with very classical roots, this play is as modern as it is original and its themes relate to society today as readily as they did to a more barbaric time.

The Love of the Nightingale will be directed by Pertulia Ramaphala for the Technikon Natal Department of Drama. A graduate of the department, she holds an HED from the Technikon and is at present doing her honours degree through the University of Natal. She also lectures part-time at the Technikon and is manager of the Kwasuka Theatre. The Love of the Nightingale will be her first production for the Department. Silent Scream, a play she workshopped with Portia Gumede earlier this year, won first prize at the Windybrow Festival in Johannesburg.

Set and costumes will be designed by Jacky Vermaas, with lighting design by Jenny Sander.

The Love of the Nightingale runs at the Courtyard Theatre in Mansfield Road on September 14, 15 and 16 at 19h30. Tickets R10 (R6 scholars). Book through Computicket or phone (031) 204-2532.
