Don’t ever say ‘There is no good theatre in Joburg’

RICHARD III at the Market Theatre is a  stunning contemporary production with 3 actors playing all the roles in Shakespeare’s play.  How they do it is beyond me – playing one role in a Shakespeare tragic drama is enough of a challenge. Excellent performances, very clever stage set,  and amazing use of over the top costumes.

Make sure you read up on the plot first although there is a really useful and informative  programme available for the princely (no pun intended) sum of R10. Tickets when we went on a Tues night were R60. Where else can you get that kind of value for really good theatre?    But I must say time and place kept concertina-ing as the various royal family names were introduced – Lancaster, Clarence, Buckingham, York, Norfolk, Northumberland, Richmond,  … all street names in Craighall Park ! All we miss in the suburb is a  Gloucester and Tudor Ave!  

Richard III is on until 24th April.
