AT THE EDGE (article first published : 2001-03-21)

The Centre for Creative Arts (University of Natal) in association with the French Institute of South Africa will present an abridged version of Ronnie Govender's award-winning At the Edge as part of the Time of the Writer Festival on March 30 at 18h00

Featuring Leeanda Reddy with music by Siva Devar, Deepak Ram and Radha Naidoo and direction by Ronnie Govender, the play is a one-person dramatization of four of the short stories from At the Edge and Other Cator Manor Stories based on the lives of people who lived in Cato Manor prior to the Group Areas Act evictions in the fifties.

The stories are narrated by the principal of Cato Manor School as she is packing up to move to the new school in Chatsworth, the newly created Indian area. As she does so various memories of the Cato Manor days come flooding back.

The presentation is one of the many pre-event presentation scheduled by the Centre for Creative Arts during the week long Writers’ Festival. To view the full programme visit the Centre for Creative Arts website at www.und.ac.za/und/carts/

The festival is funded by French Institute of South Africa, the Prince Claus Fund, FNB Fund, Business and Art South Africa (BASA), the KZN Education and Culture Directorate, Exclusive Books, Adams Campus Bookshop and various embassies and cultural agencies.
