On Tuesday eve I had the absolute pleasure of watching a new show called “Pay Back the Curry” which kicked off its Baxter Theatre run on the 15th.
With 2 big comedy names behind it in the form of producer, Siv Ngesi, and director, Rob van Vuuren, I knew that this was going to be something quite special…
AND after watching the show I summarised it as follows on Twitter:
“Loved Pay back the curry! Book your tickets now! It’ll make you laugh while also making you think. Totally brilliant.”
So ja, I think it’s safe to say that I thought it was really awesome.
But what is it all about? Here’s the official show blurb:
In the tradition of the awarding-winning BAFANA REPUBLIC satirical revues that used sport and the FIFA World Cup as entry points for biting social commentary, Mike van Graan’s PAY BACK THE CURRY! comprises a series of sketches to make audiences think even as they laugh. Produced by Siv Ngesi and directed by Rob van Vuuren, PAY BACK THE CURRY! features the multi-talented Daniel Richards depicting a variety of characters (and caricatures) commenting on all things contemporary, from sparrows and statues to Zuptas and zombies!
Tickets are only R100 each (will be worth every cent & more, that I promise you), or R90 each for block bookings of 10 or more & R75 for students and senior citizens.
