    Described as ‘a deceptively clever theatrical piece’, it is a gripping story of gangsters on the run after a botched robbery that turns into murder, with some meaningful and realistic commentary about life in modern-day South Africa. As the four hijackers’ plans begin to unravel, the audience is brought into the midst of the action as they become pawns in a high-stakes fight for survival. Nominated for four Naledi Awards (Best Production of a Play, Best Director, Best Ensemble/Cutting Edge and Best Score/Arrangement/Adaptation), the play has been performed to great acclaim at the South African State Theatre, the Market Theatre and most recently the Edinburgh Assembly Fringe Festival ,where it received some five-star reviews. The ensemble cast comprises Presley Chweneyagae ,well-known for his role in the Academy Award-winning film Tsotsi (at certain performances only – watch press for details), Zenzo Ngqobe, Boitumelo Shisana and Don Mosenye.

    AFFLECKTION
    VENUE: MOMENTUM THEATRE
    DATE: 7 - 16 NOVEMBER 2014
    PRODUCED BY DANIEL BUCKLAND, BRIONY HORWITZ AND NKOSINATHI JOACHIM GAAR
    Afflecktion is a mixed media production featuring puppetry, and mask work. It conjures a world of side-show freaks, travelling carnivals and 1950s showmanship. It is placed on the shadowy edge of the real world where a threadbare magician performs to a half empty tent and suddenly delivers a trick just a little too good... the play draws on mainstream movies invoking thriller movies and making fun of the conventions of romantic comedies. The play is full of an excitingly bizarre range of characters with each of them somehow seeking to win a collective loving gaze; to become bigger than the ordinary day to day-ness they are surrounded by. The world created is a kaleidoscope where the grotesque is made heroic, where ruthlessness is necessary for true achievement, and where the value of a face is decided by the rules made in movies.

    COMRADE BABBLE
    VENUE: INTIMATE THEATRE
    DATE: 31 OCT – 9 NOV 2014
    WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY ALLAN KOLSKI HORWITZ
    FEATURING PETER BUTLER & LEBOHANG MOTAUNG
    The phenomenon of Brett Kebble, who perpetrated the biggest corporate fraud in South Africa’s history and was then mysteriously killed in 2005 (in what has been presented as an ‘assisted suicide’) is a microcosm of the major fault lines in the New South Africa as well as being an exploration of major universal archetypes. The play COMRADE BABBLE is built round Kebble/Babble’s return from the dead in order to present the ‘truth’ of his life in the face of numerous books and articles which have painted him as a “profiteer and manipulative pirate”. It examines him from different perspectives as reflected in his dealings with a group of five other characters – free-ranging portraits of people (or composites of people) who were actually involved with Kebble.

    A CROWD
    VENUE: MOMENTUM THEATRE
    DATE: 23 OCTOBER - 2 NOVEMBER 2014
    A PLAY BY SABELO ZULU
    FEATURING AUBREY POLO & NHLANHLA DLAMINI
    CO-WRITTEN BY LERATO ZULU
    In a marriage that started as a childhood romance, a young union is unsettled as twisted fate in the form of lust and jealousy settles in. And worst of all, an unborn child is made a pawn in the young adults’ grave game of life and love. Told through song, bitter word and shocking action, three lives cast to the point of no return, the point where “three is a crowd”, as the saying goes.
