BAFANA REPUBLIC (article first published : 2007-08-26)

Mike van Graan’s Bafana Republic comes to Durban to the Catalina Theatre to run from October 2 to 28.

Inspired by the controversies of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Bafana Republic is a biting and witty satire about contemporary South Africa that has achieved critical and audience acclaim since its launch at the Franschhoek Literary Festival in May 2007. It played to packed houses at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown where The Star selected it as one of its six best shows on the Fringe.

Lindiwe Matshikiza – nominee in the Best Newcomer (Female) category at the Naledi Theatre Awards earlier this year – displays her astonishing talents in a variety of characters including the football coach’s Brazilian assistant; Chardonnay, the alcoholic footballer’s wife from the Cape Flats; Bhamjee, the intrepid World Cup entrepreneur and a variety of wannabe pop stars in the Bafana Idols sketch that features De la Rey as it has never done been done before.
