KWEKU ANANSE (article first published : 2001-06-9)

Kweku Ananse is a charming children’s theatre production presented by The Playhouse Company and scheduled to run in the Playhouse Sanlam Loft during the school holidays from July 5 to 15.

The play follows the African oral tradition of story-telling which has been passed on from generation to generation. The play is written by Zakes Mda and directed by well-known Durban actor Nathi Kunene, who is best remembered for his acting in Master Harold and the Boys and Macbeth. Nathi is also a highly-skilled director of children’s theatre. He recently directed and wrote the much-loved Cos’ Cosi last year.

Set in a small Durban flat, three young students step into a magical world of make believe when Gogo, the cleaning lady, chides them for not knowing about the most cunning and witty creature in all of the African jungle - Kweku Ananse. She weaves a tale of this crafty spider that includes a daring capture of the Monkey, the masterful trickery of the Queen Bee and an amusing encounter with a pale skinned leopard.
