Feedback is a fantastical murder mystery that, in the peculiar logic of playwright Andrew Buckland, becomes a hilarious, poignant, lyrical and quirky. This satirical comedy cunningly explores topics as diverse as food-consciousness and globalization, and, in the hands of physical clowns, TQ Zondi and Mpilo Nzimande, becomes an intense action-packed celebration of humanity and our capacity for greed and altruism. The actors takes us on a rollercoaster ride as they play scores of characters in this tale of two brothers, a detective, and a host of flying cheeses (amongst other foodstuffs), pitting their wits against the villainous Grave Brothers and aided by Mother D’Earth.
First performed by Buckland and Lionel Newton, they won numerous awards for the piece. This team has also won several Ovation Awards and a Musho! Award for their high energy off-the-wall treatment of several of Buckland’s works, including this one. A classic SA script brilliantly re-invented.
