New Production UNDERMINED Premieres at Kalk Bay Theatre, Now thru 5/3
Undermined, a new production presented by KBT Productions and Here Manje Productions, directed by multiple award-winning Tara Notcutt, premieres at Kalk Bay Theatre from today, 9 April until 3 May.
Written by Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi and Luke Brown and choreographed by Cleo Notcutt, Undermined mashes up comic book and African storytelling to tell the true tale of Madlebe, an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift, who came from Mozambique to find a job and take a better life home to his father and wife to be. However, his unique talent of a finely tuned sense of hearing leads to some interesting developments along the way. Told against the backdrop of urban Jozi and the deep of the mines, it is a story of hope, perseverance, and an unexpected hero. The cast features Luke Brown (Below My Feet) , Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi (Orpheus; A Man and A Dog; Mama Tembu's Wedding, My Low-Fat Almost Italian Wedding) and Stefan Erasmus (Lie).
"We are proud to be premiering this new South African production on the Kalk Bay Theatre stage," says Kalk Bay Theatre owner, Simon Cooper. "It is a touching and inspiring story, told in a fresh, fun and fast-paced way, creating a delightful and unique theatre experience."
Following its run at Kalk Bay Theatre, Undermined will be performed at Princess Alice Hall as part of Cape Town Edge at the National Arts Festival.
Undermined will be performed at Kalk Bay Theatre on Tuesdays to Saturdays from today, 9 April to 3 May at 8pm. Tickets cost R80 and R70 for Gallery seats. To book visit www.kalkbaytheatre.co.za.
