In the fourth year of our increasingly successful collaboration with the prestigious Market Theatre Lab, we present a season of off the wall adaptations from directors Monageng 'Vice' Motshabi and Nondumiso Msimanga at POPArt

Inspired by Dambudzo Marechera’s Pub Stories: Tony Fights Tonight, The saga of a city hermit explores a writer’s discordant landscape as he tragicomically walks the tightrope of an imagination that often refuses to bend to his will. In his world, characters demand free will and go against the plot, real and imagined spies work hard to police the writer’s choices and sometimes the writer is not sure if he is real or if he is a character in someone else’s imagination…

Directed by Monageng Vice Motshabi (Standard Bank Young Artist 2017)
