The Slap Koejawel at Arts on Main
Having been to a music event at Arts on Main with friends we dropped in to have a drink nextdoor at a bar/coffee shop/informal makeshift theatre. Happily our visit co-incided with the first showing of The slap koejawel’ . See https://www.lizatlancaster.co.za/blog/talk-the-talk-a-z-of-south-african-slang Very very funny – clever, well scripted and acted, and well worth seeing. Very local humour though.
THE SLAP KOEJAWEL [adj. SLACK noun GUAVA] & OTHER TIT BITS FOR TWO SHOWS ONLY – DIRECT FROM A HIT SEASON AT AARDKLOP FESTIVAL at the JOBURG FRINGE THEARE – SUNDAY 12 DECEMBER @ 3 & 5PM ONLY! Tickets available at Computicket or at the door – R100 (INCL)
‘This absurdly funny and touching play brings two great actresses of Stage and Television together again – Annelisa Weiland and Vanessa Cooke. The action finds two stressed-out actresses, of a certain age, in a tatty dressing room, preparing for the first preview of a new South African play… a work not without its problems! Can they pull it off without losing what’s left of their marbles?’
