NKONYENI HIGH SCHOOL (article first published : 2004-02-28)

The Department of Drama Studies at the Durban Institute of Technology (DIT) is staging Nkonyeni High School, a colourful and vibrant musical production written by a Standard Bank Young Artists Award Winner Aubrey Sekhabi

Opening on February 28, the production is directed by Durban director Jerry Pooe with set design by award winning designer Irek Karamon.

Nkonyeni High School is about township school life full of crime, violence frustration and confusion but, more impoartantly, a spirit of hope. The school principal is assigned to a school with a history of violence and difficult behaviour but his arrival changes the pupilsí lifestyles and attitudes. His commitment and love of education touched the lives of these young people and changed them to be better learners. He gave them the reason to live and an understanding of what freedom is about!

The play features students from the Durban Institute of Technology Drama Department.

Book at Computicket. Nkonyeni High School runs from February 28 to March 6 at 19h00 in the Courtyard Theatre in Mansfield Road Durban. For more information contact the DIT drama department on 031 204 21 94.
