THE ONUS CHRONICLES (article first published : 2007-06-18)

Written and performed by Genevieve Akal and Keri Miller and directed by Libby Allen and Ewok (Iain Robinson), The Onus Chronicles is a sketch comedy that was written for the Fringe Theatre of the Musho! Festival.

In the same vein as John van de Ruit and Ben Voss’s Black Mamba and Green Mamba, these two performers bring to life a variety of characters that are encountered each day in South Africa. It is a satirical comment on various aspects of modern life, with insightful digs and commentary.

“We explore the trials and tribulations of being accosted by hawkers while stopping at red traffic lights and explore the need as to why guys pinch arses,” says the production team. “A look at Oprah Winfrey’s 12 year-old girls being plucked from their homes and plunged into the luxurious surroundings of the new school being sponsored by Oprah. Real irony and much insight - albeit often rather cynical - but then, that’s what stand-up comedy is made of.

“Also featured are Breaking News on ASS TV, cars stolen or high-jacked and every situation that we as Durbanites find ourselves in daily.”

In his review for artSMart, Maurice Kort stated that the production was “very contemporary and the, young, audience loved it, roaring with laughter.“

Shows take place on June 29 and 30 at 20h00 and on July 1 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.
