THE ASABO TAIL (article first published : 2001-06-7)

Technikon Natal second and third year students will present a play by Sonny Samson-akpan as a contribution to the spirit of the African Renaissance. The Asabo Tail directed by Dennis Schauffer will open at the Courtyard Theatre in Mansfield Road, on June 12 at 19h30.

“My first meeting with Sonny Samson-akpan was at the National University of Lesotho in June 2000,” explains Dennis Schauffer. “Like so many dramatists I had contacted in the course of my research work, promises were made to provide me with unpublished playscripts, programmes and background material. Sonny was one of the very few who delivered promptly on their promises.”

Musical direction is by Juan Burgers and choreography by Jay Pather. More details from Barbara on (031) 204-2194 (mornings only).

The Ibibio word “asabo” is said to be the family of snakes known as “python” in English.
