PRODIGAL (article first published : 2007-12-26)

The Theatre – St Anne’s College is to present the much-acclaimed Prodigal created by Dani Marais and Lorraine Knox.

Featuring multi-talented performer, Tim Redpath, Prodigal played an extended run to packed houses and standing ovations at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival in July 2006 and 2007. It is a neatly plotted and superbly written classic for the modern age, following the tale of a young Eastern Cape farm boy as he decides to leave home and seek his fortune in the racy and fast-paced city of Johannesburg.

Snappy dialogue, split-second character changes, strong physical acting and exciting and innovative directing enables one man to bring a fantastic cast of characters to life: from a story-telling Xhosa woman to a morally dubious Middle-Eastern restaurant owner named Joe; an opinionated professor to a Godfather-esque gangster.

Tim Redpath's vocal and physical dexterity takes audiences on a rollercoaster journey through this timeless drama filled with pride, rejection and sacrifice.

There will be one performance only of Prodigal on January 25 at 19h30 at The Theatre - St Anne’s College, Hilton. Booking on 033 343 3300.
