CARE to put yourself in line to win one of three sets of double tickets to attend the 7.30pm Thursday, April 2, performance of the first production of the year by Durban’s award-winning KickstArt theatre company – a three-hander comedy titled An Unromantic Comedy, at Durban’s Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre?

For more details on how to enter the competition see the end of this story.

An Unromantic Comedy has been described by director Steve Stead as” a delightful play, with the feel of a sitcom, but with poignant moments of depth. One of the actors described it as ‘Friends with benefits’.”

The comedy stars Durban favourites Jessica Sole (Chicago, Shrek the Musical, Camelot, Private Lives), Iain Robinson (Twitch, Annie, Private Lives, The Ladykillers) and Belinda Henwood (Charlotte’s Web, Winnie the Pooh and many pantos).

An acclaimed contemporary work by South African actress and playwright Rosalind Butler, the play was first staged in 2013 – a Johannesburg production teaming Charmaine Weir-Smith and Antony Coleman. It premiered at the Hilton Arts Festival at Hilton College before a season at Sandton’s Theatre on the Square.

An Unromantic Comedy is said to be a fresh, funny and thought-provoking play centred on a man called Tony, who prepares a romantic dinner for two. He is shocked when Rachel, his ex-fiancée, arrives. Tony realises then that he sent Rachel the text message invitation to dinner instead of his intended guest.

An awkward evening ensues as the couple is forced to confront their infidelities, hopes, dreams, disappointments and the truth about who they really are.

Tickets for the 2020 KickstArt production, designed by Greg King, cost R180 throughout (R130 for pensioners and students with valid cards).
