CLASSIC DRAMA EXTENDED (article first published : 1999-10-2)

Themi Venturas’s modernised version of Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra played at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre several weeks ago as part of the University of Natal Drama Department's 50th anniversary festivities (see review on this website under Drama). The production was so successful that Themi, who also directed the play, was requested by the theatre management to extend the show for a further five performances due to the overwhelming public response.

The play is a matric setwork this year and the production, which features up to date technology such as e-mail messages and TV images depicting the Roman war, was well received by students who reported that their understanding of the play had become much clearer. With set design by Peter Court, the cast is headed by Michael Gritten as Anthony, Belinda Harwood as Cleopatra and Patrick Collyer as Enobarbus.

Performances take place from October 5 to 9 at 19h30. Tickets R35 (R17 for scholars). To book, phone 201-9242 or 083 292-5324.
