PMB PERFORMERS IN DURBAN (article first published : 2001-06-10)

This month, the Square Space Theatre will host three diverse and entertaining plays which have had highly successful seasons in Pietermaritzburg. They are presented by actor/director Greg King and the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg.

June 7 to 9: Table Manners, written and directed by Greg King, is inspired by the works of Agatha Christie. Itís a crazy who-dunnit set in the Snowy Creek Supper Stage where the star turn, Miss Dina Divine, is discovered in her dressing room Ö dead. It is up to her nearest (and not so dearest) friends who are seated in the auditorium to find out which one of them is the murderer. Table Manners, a delightfully whacky comedy of bad manners, is performed by students from the University of Natal PMB Drama Department.

June 14 to 16: A Savage from the Colonies is a new play by Janet van Eeden-Harrison based on the life of Katherine Mansfield. This engaging and powerful three-hander explores the illusory nature of success and independendence and poses the question of whether or not it is possible for a woman to be truly free in society. It is set in the early part of the 20th century when Katherine Mansfield tried to launch her career in London before going on to be considered the best short story writer of her time. The cast includes Stacey Taylor (Mansfield), Justin Southey and Vera Clare. Directors are Peter Mitchell and Ian Roberts.

June 20 to 22: Talking Heads. This production of two of British playwright Alan Bennetís brilliant monologues is directed by Peter Mitchell and comes to Durban after playing to rave reviews in its first season in Pietermaritzburg. It features multi-award winning Greig Coetzee (performing someone elseís work, for a change!) and highly experienced actress Vera Clare. Not to be missed.

All shows start at 19h30. Book at Computicket or tickets at the door.
