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.
