LIFE'S A PITCH (article first published : 1999-04-15)

Running at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre until April 11, with a possible extension of a further week, Life's a Pitch is another hilarious gem from South Africa's top comedy writer, Paul Slabolepszy.

Briefly, Life's a Pitch is about a last-minute stand-in umpire who disrupts his co-umpire's equanimity, the umpire's dressing room and the match.

As the well-spoken and knowledgeable Richard Hopcroft distasteful of vulgarity and obsessed with tradition, Graham Hopkins is impeccable. James Borthwick last introduced Corky Labuschagne to Durban audiences in the one-man show, Tickle to Fine Leg which played to a sell-out season in the Cellar. His delightful interpretation of the jovial, bumbling and educationally-challenged Corky is the product of keen observation and a complete understanding of the person he is portraying.

Those who love cricket will revel in the humour but if you know nothing about it you'll still have a hilarious evening.
