VIDEO: A HAIR THINGY Comes to Simply Blue This December

There's no business like hair business! Performer and playwright Rudy Bessit aims to do away with negative stereotypes associated with coloured people in his solo show, A HAIR THINGY.

Hair has always been a bone of contention in the coloured community, and the play is aptly set in a hair salon, a space that is usually home to the juiciest gossip, allowing Bessit to explore the dynamics of the coloured community through his portrayal of several characters. Bessit comments on his objective in creating the show:

I aim to take the production to theatres across South Africa to showcase the talent in our coloured townships by exposing our poorer communities to the world of theatre.

A HAIR THINGY runs at Simply Blue on 1 December at 20:00. Tickets costing R100 are available at the door. Watch a preview of the show, filmed during its Polokwane run, below!
