SLICE OF MADNESS (article first published : 2000-09-25)

Durban’s Kwasuka Theatre will be abuzz with a festival of local theatre in October. Pooling their resources, a group of Durban artists have taken the pro-active step of hiring the Kwasuka Theatre for the whole month when they will present a diverse and interesting programme.

Billed as A Slice Of Madness – Entertainment with an Edge, the events will run from Tuesdays to Sundays with two shows on Fridays and Saturdays.

Theatre-goers have the opportunity of seeing the best of local talent. Comedy there is a-plenty with Boxers and Bikinis; The Final Cut; The Gladiator, and The Hole. There’s more outrageous comedy in Kaseran Pillay’s Kaseran’s Komedy Klub and two absurdist one-act plays with the David Campton Double Bill Then… & Mutatis Mudandis. Women of Mud is a dark and playful drama moving between the absurd and profound while The House Husband deals with a re-located couple longing for their South African home.

There’s a strong music element with Marie Visagie’s one-woman cabaret, Buite Blom die Daisies. Juan Burgers presents An Evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein Songs as well a journey through song and poetry with The Vagabond.

Adding a touch of glamour will be the Ruff Tung Summer Collection 2001, an exclusive viewing of this designer label’s Summer 2001 collection.

Tickets R25 (R20 pensioners, students and block bookings) through Computicket. Details from Kwasuka Theatre on 309 2236. (Watch this space for a detailed daily programme)
