On Friday evening I once again visited my favourite little theatre, the Kalk Bay Theatre (52 Main Rd, Kalk Bay), this time for a comedy satire one-man show called State Fracture.
The show, which has been written by Mike van Graan, is a follow up to the very successful “Pay Back The Curry”. In fact, it’s the exact same creative team with Rob van Vuuren sitting in the director’s chair, Siv Ngesi fulfilling the producing role and featuring Best Breakthrough Performer nominee, Naledi Theatre Awards Best Performer nominee, and Best Performer in a Revue nominee at the Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards, Daniel Mpilo Richards.
But if you didn’t see Pay Back the Curry, don’t stress, it’s not the kind of sequel where you needed to have seen the first. It just would’ve help set the scene as to what to expect from a show style perspective, but it’s totally fine to see the one without the other.
The show takes a comical look at South African current affairs and the general state of the nation. It’s hard-hitting, funny & on point, and Daniel’s performance is absolutely incredible. I really enjoyed it and I’m sure you will too.
After successful runs at Alexander Bar and the Baxter, State Fracture will be at Kalk Bay Theatre until Sat, 28 October 2017. The show starts at 8:30pm (with the restaurant opening at 6:15pm if you want to book a table for a quick dinner before). The running time is 60min and there is a 16yr age restriction.
Tickets cost only R150 pp (OR if you book on Tuesdays, you get 2 for the price of one!). You can book your tickets directly via the Kalk Bay Theatre website over here right now or by calling them on 021 788 7257.
Do it, you won’t regret it. 🙂
