MY SUGAR DADDY (article first published : 2001-04-21)

Mahomed Alli and Essop Khan are well-known for their comedy productions which they tour extensively, often to sell-out houses. These have included Jamal Syndrome, My Second Wife and Cha Chaís Spaza Shop.

The latest show from this creative duo is My Sugar Daddy. It is set in a brokerís office which is also used as a rehearsal space by group of performers who are to appear as guest artists in an overseas production.

Whilst rehearsing their songs both in Hindi and English they discuss a wide range of subjects from family inflicted violence, the new South Africa and the treatment which civil servants hand out to members of the public. Subjects range from blacks moving into Indian areas; clerks at government welfare offices; hospital staff; the education system; politicians and bureaucrats. In the cast are Savy Ramsamy, Manesh Maharaj and Finaly Rahaman.

The show kicks off its KZN tour in Chatsworth at the Aryan Benevolent Home at Arena Park on April 26 and 27. Details from Mohamed Alli on 083 982-2362 or (031) 902-4514 (after hours).
