PULLING MY LEG! (article first published : 2007-02-24)

Actors Co-Op presents Garth Anderson and Wallace McDougall in Pulling My Leg! at Rhumbelow Theatre, offering an evening of Candlelight Theatre, made up of comic works, entertainment, amusing and humorous short stories by the worlds greatest writers, including Truman Capote, Herman Charles Bosman and Saki.

Wallace McDougall has worked in Europe for the past 12 years. He began his professional career playing Osric in Hamlet at the Playhouse in 1994. He studied Drama at Natal Technikon. For the Actors Co-op, Wallace starred in The Lunatic, The Lover & The Poet, which he co-devised with Garth Anderson, Catherine Farren and Belinda Harward, and in Playing With Fire. Before leaving for London, he wrote and performed the children’s play Biff And Billy and was seen in Simply Saki, Othello and in Oliver!

His years in Europe have been spent in a creative splurge, indulging in a variety of disciplines from digital animation (his profession) to theatre, sculpture and photography. He has exhibited photographic portraits at the Shop Gallery in Whitechapel. His sculptures have been shown in exhibitions in London and in Greece. He spends a large part of his year in Kyparissi in the Peloponeso where he co-ordinates an annual creative youth project, producing mime, film and theatre. In London he has appeared in Aldebaran Theatre Company’s The Trojan Women and Salome as Jokanaan and the Royal Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, and in Hereford he played Max Rheinhardt in Cabaret. He has a degree in Special Effects Design from the University of London. Wallace has returned to South Africa to play Polonius in the Actors Co-operative’s Hamlet.

Garth Anderson is the recipient of the 2006 Fools Award for Lifetime Achievement in Theatre, and the Vita Best Director Award for White Men With Weapons. He also won the Vita for his performance in KickstArt’s The Importance Of Being Earnest. Garth Anderson was seen at the Rhumbelow last year with friend and colleague Vera Clare in Well I Never! His tribute to Noel Coward, Out In The Midday Sun with Clare Mortimer was a sell out in this venue a few years back.

Shows take place on March 16 and 17 at 20h00 and March 18 at 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R60. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.
