MEN’S NIGHT (article first published : 2001-08-31)

Men's Night is a new one-man show written and performed by Ben Voss who also appeared in The Final Cut, Foul Play, War Cry and Seeing Red It is directed by multi-award winning director and actor Greig Coetzee (White Men with Weapons, Breasts).

The production premiered on the fringe of the recent Standard Bank National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and was well received by the critics. The show will have two performances in the DuMarc Cabaret Festival on September 4 and 14 at 19h00 at Unit 6 Springfield Park.

Ben Voss, who received this year’s FNB Vita Durban Theatre award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Twelfth Night poses the question: When are South African men truly men? From bedrooms to boardrooms to brothels and boarding schools, Men’s Night “explores the process to maturity of the South African white male”.

Characters include the sex-struck schoolboy, the broken father, the misguided yuppie and the small town boilermaker, to name a few, giving insight into the insecurity, vulnerability and confusion that affects many South African white males in an affirmative society – “especially now when the model for masculinity keeps changing. Has the South African male had the rug pulled from under his feet, or has he learned to dance on a shifting carpet?”

Men’s Night promises to be enthralling, comical and razor sharp. To book phone (031) 579-1230.
