Mike van Graan skop gat

Julle weet seker ek is mal oor die teater en Mike van Graan bly een van die produktiefste dramaturge in die hede.

Sy nuwe stuk, Is it because I’m Jack?, open by Aardklop vandeesweek. Gaan kyk, mense! Gaan kyk.

Vanaf 5 tot 16 Oktober speel dit in Kaapstad, by On Broadway (Langstraat 44). Dit begin glo om 20h30 elke aand, bel gerus die teater by 021 424 1194.

Hierdie drama het ’n baie interessante agtergrond, maar ek gaan Mike dit in sy eie woorde laat vertel:

One of the board members of Aardklop celebrates a significant birthday this year, and her husband used to run one of the country’s major banks. Being the arts patrons that they are, he decided to give her a play for her birthday and I had the honour of being commissioned to write this play. This was a gift not only to Estelle Dippenaar from her husband, Laurie, but also to me as a writer, as I was given carte blanche to write about whatever I wanted with the initial production costs taken care of too; a gift to the cast of four young, hot actors who will have work for at least a couple of months, and then of course, a gift to you, the theatre-going community!

Bravo Laurie Dippenaar!

Is it because I’m Jack? is bittersoet komedie oor Tim, eens ’n druggie en nou ’n katolieke priester, Jack, die macho reisskrywer, Anele, ’n Zim-vlugteling wat ’n lewe maak uit stand-up comedy, en Marty, die sakeman met die groot drome en die klein suksesse.

Wanneer ’n siekte hierdie groepie vriende tref, begin hulle skielik hulle eie lewens deeglik in heroënskou neem.

Die rolverdeling bestaan uit Clyde Berning, Morne Visser, Anele Matoti en Andrew Laubscher.

Ek gaan beslis my alie draai om daar te wees. Sien julle daar!
