On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Gopala Davies about Tamasha on Hope Street.
Tamasha on Hope Street.
South African playwright Rajesh Gopie is no newcomer to the Market Theatre’s stage. In 1999, his play Out of Bounds filled up a successful 5-week season before it went off on an acclaimed national and international tour. His play Coolie Odessey, revolved around the struggle and aspirations of indentured labourers, was commissioned by the National Art Festival. His new play Tamasha on Hope Street, will premier at the Market Theatre and it promises to also be a runaway success.
Set in the Indian township of Chatsworth against the backdrop of poverty and social abuse in the face of new freedom, this magic realism production will be directed by Gopala Davies who is known for his cutting edge production of Le Cenci which premiered last year on the main stage of the National Arts Festival. Davies will be assisted by theatre producer and director, Gita Pather for his Market Theatre directorial debut.
