On the planks at Alexander

2017-03-28 06:03

There’s some storytelling with a difference at the Alexander Upstairs Theatre this week from an interesting storyteller.

Within a two year period that coincided with his thirtieth birthday, Lebogang Mogashoa moved countries, lost a parent, and changed careers. He insisted that he was fine; all he needed was Chardonnay, an entire carrot cake and a good night’s sleep, every single day.

Until he was mugged at gun point just before his 31st birthday. He suddenly found himself buried under the weight of three decade’s worth of terrifying experiences.

In The Real Dirt, he examines some of those experiences through gratifyingly personal and hilarious stories that arrive at a satisfying moment of human connection, and an Apple product.

This production is running at the venue at 76 Strand Street (on the corner of Loop street) at 19:00 until Saturday 1 April.

. Also at this venue for this week, starting at 21:00 (after The Real Dirt) is The Triple M Mammmas Kurk About AzaNya! – a sketch comedy show starring a troupe of four African ladies who use satire, parody and pastiche to hold up a critical mirror to society to reflect socio, political and economic issues.

The show is performed by Kitty Moepang, Tumy Motsoatsoe, MoMo Matsunyane, and Zethu Dlomo.
