  • Durban Theatre Review: The Art of Being Ugly


    If anyone knows about the douleurs of playing dames it’s Darren King and Anthony Stonier, Durban’s most devoted divas and most popular players of the genre. They combine good looks, song and dance-in-high-heels skills, dress-up flair and are both actors with serious credibility in terms of the work they do out of panto-drag. To see them squeezed into outrageously uncomfortable costumes, with acres of petticoats, nipped in waists, bolstered bosoms, mutton leg sleeves and six foot high head gear is to gasp in admiration. And,  when they show off those admirable legs and nicely toned arms, many a middle-aged lady in the audience feels a twinge of vengeful jealousy

    David Muller as Oom Schalk Lourens 

    Durban can look forward to the return of the Merry Scholar, alias Cape Town actor, David Muller who is staging some of Herman Charles Bosman's best short stories in his ‘Oom Schalk, from the Heart’  the first of a series of shows David intends bringing to theatres around the country. He arrives at Seabrooke's Theatre (DHS) direct from the National Arts Festival and will be opening on Tuesday 15 July for a short season. But for one all the stories in the show have been related by Bosman's fictitious but much loved uncle, Schalk Lourens; and as a treat there is a surprise in store which in Lourens' parlance is in good upright taste. He is also offering his theatre-in-education 'Imagining Einstein for High Schools'.
