Classic plays at the Hexagon Theatre The Island Woza Albert!

2015-04-30 06:00

THE Island will be showcased on 13 and 15 May at the Hexagon Theatre at 8.15pm and 6.30pm respectively.

John and Winston are two prisoners on Robben Island, bound by ideology, proximity, shackles and a deep affection.

As they rehearse Antigone for the prison concert, John learns that his release is imminent, Winston is a lifer.

This classic South African play by Athol Fugard, John Kani and Winston Ntshona, balances hope and despair as it exposes the depths of cruelty and inhumanity while affirming the dignity and courage of the human spirit. Under the direction of Peter Mitchell, TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande deliver riveting performances of this South African classic.

Tickets are R45 per person for schools.

WOZA Albert! will be at the Hexagon Theatre on 14 May at 6.30pm and tickets are R45/pp for schools.

This classic of South African theatre asks what would happen if Christ (Morena) came back to 1980’s apartheid South Africa. The show is primarily a satire that highlights the absurdities of apartheid and displays the talents of two dextrous actors, TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande, who play a range of ordinary characters on the street. Directed by Peter Mitchell, the show looks back after 20 years of democracy and reminds us of the tragic lunacy that was apartheid, as well as the continued search for compassionate, intelligent and humane leadership. This production hopes to recreate a theatrical period in our history, as well as look back from a new perspective at what changed the face of poor theatre worldwide
