SOPHIATOWN (article first published : 2006-08-13)

The Junction Avenue Theatre Company classic masterpiece, Sophiatown, has been re-staged and directed by Durban's Jerry Pooe with a fresh cast of young performers and has a short season at the Catalina Theatre until August 27.

Until its destruction by government decree in the mid-1950's Sophiatown was the 'Chicago of South Africa', a vibrant community that produced not only gangsters and shebeen queens but leading journalists, writers, musicians and politicians and gave urban African culture its rhythm and style.

Schools performances are at 11h00 until August 25. Tickets R30 per pupil.

Tickets R65 (R55 concessions) and public performances are from August 15 to 27 from Thursday to Saturday at 20h00 (Sunday at 18h00). Bookings through Thandeka on 031 305 6889.
