THE Hexagon Theatre presents its 10th annual mini-fest on February 26 and February 27, hosting a range of theatre pieces to suit all tastes - from comedy and drama, to musical in exciting new theatre creations, and award-winning productions.

Beyond Trust

Sipho’s grandfather loves birds. He has a favourite dove that he reads to from the Bible every day. When Sipho’s friend convinces him that hunting birds is what most young boys do for fun, he finds out what it means to be a bird. Performed by Sandile Msomi and Lindokuhle Sithole, under the direction of Sbusiso Ntsalaze.

Produced by Thandimpilo Productions, the show won a Special Mention Award at the recent Musho! Festival in Durban. The company is from Edendale in Pmb and creates theatre and educational projects for the Greater Edendale area. They are currently being mentored by Twist Projects KZN.

T ermite! Tall Tales for Big People
Written by Greig Coetzee, performed by TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande, and directed by Peter Mitchell.

Termite! combines physical theatre, satire and a dash of lunacy as it blends traditional folk tales with modern South African life.

Fresh from winning the coveted Audience Favourite Award at the Musho! Festival in Durban and having full houses at last year’s Hilton Arts Festival, Termite! performers Zondi and Nzimande have made a name for themselves nationally as Ovation Award winners for Woza Albert!, as well as their moving performances in The Island.

Matty and Sis

Matty and Sis are sisters, like any other relationship they have issues and fights. As the play unfolds it is revealed that one of the sisters is dead, she keeps coming back every night to Matty’s bedroom because Matty cannot let go.

Directed by Philisiwe Twijnstra and performed by Ayanda Fali and Vicky Nyanda. Designed by Roel Twijnstra. The award-winning playwright, Theo Fransz, trained at the theatre school in Amsterdam.

Timothy Tatters Tea Time Terrible

Timothy Tatters is a man with a dilemma. Follow this dark and comedic struggle as he attempts to find a soul mate through digital social interaction.

A Do-Devise production devised and performed by Monique Hill and Chris Couperthwaite, both graduates of UKZN Drama.

A Beautiful Wreckage

The creators of the award-winning comedy PaperBoy bring you a musical for the new South Africa.

Against the backdrop of a tumultuous university life of sex, drugs and wild parties, this musical comedy-drama explores the ups and downs that inevitably follow a life lived to the full.

Combining the magic of animation with traditional stage craft, compelling characters and an engrossing story. Performed by Grant Jacobs and Liam McDermott.

The Last Commission

The Last Commission tells the story of the not so new South African experience. The performance is based on a conference paper to be presented in Hungary, Budapest in March 2015. The research looks at performing collected memories of violence and trauma in South Africa.

Devised by performers, Pumelela “Push” Nqelenga and Ayanda Khala-Phiri.

Sweetie Darling

A new one-man stage comedy starring Bongani Mbatha by multiple award-winning playwright-director Clinton Marius (Lollipop Lane, The Fantastical Flea Circus, B!*ch Stole My Doek).

Sweetie Darling is a romantic comedy about a young man who goes all out to prove himself. As he finds himself, and love, he also finds his path to spiritual growth.
