GREEN MAMBA (article first published : 2003-07-19)

John van de Ruit and Ben Vosís Green Mamba has played to packed houses and critical acclaim throughout South Africa for over a year. It returns, yet again, to Hilton for one performance only.

Described in the artSMart review as, "Hilarious, clever, incisive and bang up to date" (ssee drama Archives) Green Mamba is a venomous satirical comedy, taking a hilarious look at the trials and tribulations of life in the new South Africa.

Through a series of fifteen ingenious sketches FNB VITA award winners Ben Voss and John van de Ruit take the audience on a side-splitting journey through a day in the life of this weird and wonderful country. From an in depth study of the refined art of car-guarding, to a savage send up of the Big Brother Household and an in depth study of the war in Iraq, the humour runs thick and fast culminating in the most enthralling horse race ever seen on a South African stage!

Green Mamba is directed by Greig Coetzee (White Men With Weapons, Breasts and now Happy Natives) and written by John van de Ruit and Ben Voss. The performance will take place on July 25 at 20h00. Tickets R45.
