THE WELL BEING (article first published : 1999-12-14)

Andrew Buckland's sensational new theatre piece, The Well Being, which played to capacity crowds at the Hilton Arts Festival, is set to return to KZN for a season in January. Apart from pre-sold shows, there will be performances at the new St Mary's Performing Arts Centre in Kloof on January 27, 28 and 29 and at the Hilton Theatre on February 4. Schools can book their own performances or take advantage of the special rates offered at St Mary's and Hilton.

The Well Being is the latest in the series of brilliantly written theatre pieces from South Africa's master of mime and inventive story telling, Andrew Buckland. This time he uses piles of newsprint and a watermelon as he plays with his partner, Lionel Newton, and creates the story of the "Well Being" and her effect on an entire community. Directed by award winning Lara Foot Newton, Andrew and Lionel portray a myriad of characters ranging from frogs and dolphins to a small confused boy, a rape victim and an elderly sanctimonious couple. Not to mention what they can do with a watermelon!

The Well Being has played to great critical acclaim in Johannesburg, Grahamstown and Hilton. After a brief KZN season it will tour to Belgium, Zimbabwe and Australia. Enquiries and bookings after January 10 from Sue Clarence on (031) 764-7518 or e-mail: clarence@icon.co.za, Carol Swart at St Mary’s on (031) 764-1337 or Doreen Stanley at Hilton on (0333) 430126.
