The Ugly Noo Noo rocked the local theatre world in 1988, featuring the infamous Parktown Prawn. Playwright Andrew Buckland is now a legend in South African Theatre for developing his own unique style of Physical
Theatre. Now, 30 years later, it has not lost any of its power, as it deftly and humorously shows how fear can be
used to manipulate, dominate, exploit and destroy. This new production of the play highlights the sharp political satire with exquisite humour and showcases the high energy technical skill of its performer, Mpilo ‘Straw’ Nzimande. Nzimande has become a commanding presence in KZN Theatre with his extraordinary performances inWoza
Albert, Master Harold and the Boys, Feedback, and most recently, The BFG. Directed by Peter Mitchell, whose production of Greig Coetzee’s The Blue Period of Milton van der Spuy, seen at last year’s Festival, has recently won an Ovation Award at the NAF. A slice of SA history interwoven with comedy ….after all, it is the tale a sort of a cockroach! AWB …no not what you recall ….rather Animals Without Beauty!!
