THE MINERVA CHILDREN (article first published : 1999-09-19)

Its never too early to plan Christmas holiday entertainment for children because, before you know it the time has arrived! One of the highlights promises to be The Actors Co-Operative s highly acclaimed production, The Minerva Children, directed by award-winning Garth Anderson. Starring Nathi Kunene, winner of the 1999 FNB Vita award for best actor, it is set in 1850 and uses history, fantasy and loads of audience participation. Also featuring Lindsay Sullivan and newcomer to the Durban stage, Georgina Konigkramer, it tells the story of brother and sister, Georgy and Bessie McLeod, journeying to South Africa on the sailing ship Minerva. As in true life, the Minerva is shipwrecked and the play tells the saga of these youngsters as they are separated from their parents and eventually saved by a reclusive Zulu man who they eventually befriend. He introduces them to Zulu culture

There will be performances of The Minerva Children in the Durban Botanical Gardens from December 7 to 25 (Tuesdays to Sundays) at 11h00. Booking is at Computicket or phone 083 439-1532. The show is also available for performances at schools, functions, parties and shopping centres, etc. in Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Empangeni.
