Award-winning writer Nick Warren’s latest play ‘Sunday Morning’ will be showing at Kalk Bay Theatre for the next few weeks, hot off the Main Programme at the National Arts Festival. It will be performed Wednesday to Saturdays until August 11 at 8.30pm.
The stellar creative team behind the production, which was part of the National Arts Festival’s season of solo plays, includes acclaimed director Jenine Collocott and seasoned theatre-maker and actor James Cuningham.
This is the second collaboration with Collocott and Warren, the brains behind the comedic one-man show ‘Dirt’ featuring James Cairns, which enjoyed a sold-out run at Kalk Bay Theatre in 2010.
Cunningham plays Mat, a successful photographer who has his life exactly how he likes it – ordered, neat, and beautifully composed – until the day his girlfriend tells him she is pregnant. In an attempt to process this disturbing information he goes out for a run. Straying from his regular route, he ventures into a strange part of the city where he makes a gruesome discovery that changes everything.
“It’s a compelling piece of theatre that’s funny, poignant and moving, with an exciting thriller element, and performed by one of South Africa’s foremost theatrical talents,” says Collocott.
Gauteng-based Cuningham is no stranger to Cape audiences. He has wowed them in productions such as ‘Jutro’, ‘Baobabs Don’t Grow Here’, ‘Black and Blue’ and ‘De Wet’s Dream’.
