The South African State Theatre as part of its’ Incubator Programme, presents Turning Tables.
A drama production written and directed by the young Remaketse Ntoi from Tembisa. Born with a passion arts development, the 24-year-old began his writing career in 2014 through arts development programmes. He wrote and even played in numerous shows in his upbringing as an artist.
Turning tables is a play that references the bible and looks at the little things that may damage a marriage. A woman’s thirst for satisfaction needs to be quenched every now and then. As the bible says; a man’s body does not belong to him alone but to his wife and the woman’s body, like wise. This means the husband gives authority of his body to his wife and the wife does the same to her husband. But when memories of the past visits Mahlomola, (memories of molestation and killing) he fails to quench his wife’s thirst. Then the tables turn when the wife becomes obsessed with cards. However, the obsession tears the relationship of these two packs.
This production is achieved through SAST Incubator programme, designed in collaboration with the Department of Arts and Culture to accelerate the successful development of entrepreneurial artist through an array of business and technical support and service, developed by the incubation programme, and offered both in the incubator and through the incubators network of contacts. This programme’s main goal is to produce successful incubatees that will leave the programme financially viable and freestanding.
Come support and celebrate the works of our young booming talent in performing arts entertainment. It will be a thrilling performance of tables tumbling as cards fly, the present revisiting the past to reveal darkest alter egos.
