‘Song and Dance’ is a very black comedy by Megan Furniss that will be performed at the Kalk Bay Theatre from May 1 to 19.
In the play, two bungling house robbers bite off more than they can chew when they are interrupted while robbing a trendy apartment in a ‘mixed development’ building.
The twists and turns are unexpected and the robbers and victim end up realising that they have more in common than they thought possible.
‘Song and Dance’ pokes fun at crime, money and fame and TV reality shows in the most in-your-face way.
This fast paced, funny and satirical play is playwright, writer, performer, director and blogger Furniss’s latest creation for the stage. It was runner up in the regional PANSA (the performing Arts Network of South Africa) playwriting competition.
Simon Cooper, of The Kalk Bay Theatre saw the staged reading and insisted that he produce the funny script, with a couple of provisos; he wanted the same cast and director, and he wanted a soccer scene. He got both.
‘Song and Dance’ is directed by Ntombi Makhutshi (award winning actress of ‘London Road’ fame) and performed by Anele Situlweni, Deon Nebulane and Zondwa Njokweni.
After its premier at The Kalk Bay Theatre it will be taking the Grahamstown festival’s fringe by storm.
