Tartuffe

Sylvaine Strike’s touring production of Moliere’s ‘Tartuffe’ touched down in Durban for a short run and played at the DUT’s Courtyard Theatre. It impressed with its energy, vibrancy and a semi-nouveau mix of theatrical styles and genres. A comedy of manners, exposing the hypocrisy of the church, the original play, written in rhyming couplets, was banned by the church at the time. Its exposure of false piety, corruption and the manipulation of the gullible remains relevant and applicable (PIC: Craig Morris & Neil McCarthy Photo by Dee-Ann Kaaijk)

While the music and story are well known to many generations, if well done, they translate into a wonderful evening of beautiful escapism borne on the wings of songs. It is a production with scope and this too has been masterfully achieved by Director Ralph Lawson and his team of experts

Fleetwood Mac. A phenomenal  band that has enjoyed well-deserved and extraordinary success over decades, having written some of the most important blues and rock hits in the global song book. Starting off as a straight blues band, they graduated to a fusion rock band with signature musical originality, great lyrics, hot harmonies and great versatility. The idea to mount a show around their music by the Reals, Durban’s premier show band, has paid off. The first two seasons of ‘The Chain’ were sold out and bookings are already pouring in for the extra shows planned at the Rhumbelow Theatre (Umbilo, Durban) for Sunday 11 December and the weekend 16 - 18 December
