On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Phala O. Phala about My Hole My Home on stage now at The Market Theatre.
My Hole My Home.
A beautiful thing about theatre is that the legacy of playwrights can live on even after they have passed, through the scripts that they endow us and the performances that are staged to celebrate their lives. The premiere of playwright John Moalusi Ledwaba’s last play My Hole My Home at the Market Theatre will be a testimony to the legacy that playwrights endow to future generations.
John Moalusi Ledwaba passed on in December 2017 and Artistic Director of The Market Theatre, James Ngcobo announced that the Market Theatre will produce and premiere the legendary playwright’s last play. The play is a production of the Department of Arts & Culture’s Incubator Programme.
Directed by Phala Ookeditse Phala and starring Mandla Gaduka and Seneliso Dladla, My Hole My Home is about the plight of two homeless men living in the streets of Johannesburg; and for whom the home in the streets provides roots, identity, security, a sense of belonging and a place of emotional well-being.
