DE CUMPLEAT HISTRY OF DBN (article first published : 2007-10-17)

De Cumpleat Histry of Dbn (abridged), a brand new festive show penned by Themi Venturas in the style of The Compleat Wrks of Wlm Shkspr (Abridged) sets out to celebrate the unique history of the town “discovered” on Christmas Day by Vasco de Gama, who – on his voyages away from his nagging wife and a persistent tax man, brought him to name Porto Natalia which grew up to become “Durban”.

The irreverent potted history will seek to tell the stories behind the historical facts, lightly peppered with occasional ditties, parodies and traditional songs from the city’s earliest history until today. Festive fun, laughter and a generous dollop of self-mockery will be the order of the day.

De Cumpleat Histry of Dbn (abridged) runs from November 27 to December 31 at Catalina Theatre with performances from Tuesdays to Saturdays at 20h00 (Sundays at 18h00). For more information or to book, contact the Catalina Theatre on 031 305 6889.
