International award winning South African playwright, Mike van Graan’s brilliant play GREEN MAN FLASHING is a fast-paced political thriller written in a filmic style and stars leading stage and television actors, Litha Bam, Michelle Douglas, Tessa Jubber, Sechaba Morojele with David Dennis. It’s essentially the story of white ANC loyalist Gabby, and Aaron, her black husband, who returned to South Africa from exile after the ANC stormed to power in 1994. As tensions rise ahead of the crucial next elections, Gabby is raped by her boss, a Cabinet minister with a strong support base in KZN and tipped to become the next deputy president. The play is regarded as being remarkable for anticipating the real life drama of the ANC Deputy President, Jacob Zuma, being linked to charges of corruption in the arms deal and then later charged with rape. Lesley Stones, The Daily Maverick: “Sound familiar? We never meet the politician, but you can probably hear his faint “hehehehehe” giggle in your head. Jacob Zuma – sorry, the fictional character – is a dangerous man to cross, and if the allegations of rape were to go public, the political fallout would be huge… Ah yes, remember Khwesi”. Not to be missed!
