Critically acclaimed play

2009-10-27 00:00

THE Last Kick of a Dying Horse, a gripping three-hander starring Menzi Mzobe, Momelezi Ntshiba and Siyabonga Shibe, rounds off the Playhouse Company’s New Stages Festival in the drama theatre.

It tells the story of two friends, trapped behind prison bars, who contemplate their actions as they face possible life imprisonment.

Can they justify killing seven people to avenge the death of their friend? Should their actions have been tempered by the fact that the seven dead were refugees? Should they lose faith in the justice system because the killer who sparked off their actions is still at large?

The Last Kick of a Dying Horse has been performed to critical acclaim twice at the National Arts Festival.

Performances are at 7 pm on ­October 28 and October 30. Tickets, priced R40, can be booked at Computicket.
