SIENER IN DIE SUBURBS (article first published : 2003-06-20)

Hilton College’s production this term is the award winning Siener in die Suburbs by P G du Plessis. The plot revolves around a young man living, perhaps, in the southern suburbs of Johannesburg who has the gift of predicting the future and the effects this has on those around him.

It is a poignant and occasionally amusing look at ordinary people engaged in the not-always easy task of living out their lives, buffeted by circumstances which they lack the ability to control. The script has been recognised as an outstanding contribution to South African literature and has won the CNA Prize for Literature; the Hertzog Prize for Drama; and the WA Hofmeyr Prize.

As an IEB setwork, this production is a must for schools studying the work. Productions taken place in the Hilton College Theatre from June 23 to 26 at 19h30. Tickets R20. Bookings on 033 343 0126
