221; at The Intimate Theatre, UCT Hiddingh Campus.
The play begins in a scrap yard on a Saturday afternoon where, by various twists of fate, three characters find themselves, thrown together by circumstance. They must each make the journey to self revelation before they can find some peace and realise that there may just be sunshine up ahead.
South African, Zingi Mtuzula plays Daniel, whose tragedy straddles the old regime and the new, setting him off on a search for reason. Vusi (played by Mbulelo Grootboom), is surfing the glorious wave of empowerment and grabs at the opportunities of a fully democratised distribution system, whereas George (Pierre Malherbe) has been cut adrift in the New South Africa, angry at a changing country where he is becoming less and less important.
Hurt’s satire crackles with wit, charm, heartbreak and unswerving honesty, whilst Neill’s direction teases the idea of a rainbow nation into a crazy circus.
Audience’s can look forward to a Grahamstown feel with mulled wine available after the show and on the spot prizes for those who pre-book their tickets (details below).
