…..BY BILLY SUTER……
DURBAN’S quaint and newly renovated Seabrooke’s Theatre at Durban High School, in St Thomas Road, is to welcome another comedy – a new solo show by Durban’s king of comedy, Aaron McIlroy, titled Apology – after the extended run of KickstArt’s hit, Sylvia.
Other good news is that this site has four double tickets to give away to Apology’s 7pm performance on Wednesday, November 18. See the end of this story for details on how to win a pair of complimentary tickets!
MacBob Productions is to present the debut run of Apology, described in publicity as “a laugh-a-line, one-man rollercoaster” in which McIlroy teams again with writer-director Patrick Kenny.
The show has been described as a quirky and hilarious look at the world of tone-deaf dudes and privilege in all its forms. It centres on McIlroy as advertising executive Danny, who accidentally unleashes the most politically insensitive song and dance act at a national peace conference, then goes into hiding at a rundown caravan park.
Unexpectedly trapped in an extended lockdown with a right-wing resort manager, Danny uses the time to examine his life, and the way he has treated those closest to him.
“It’s a thin line between a telephone conversation with my mother and a hostage negotiation,” says Danny.
Apology previews at Seabrooke’s on Thursday, November 12, and runs until November 29. Performance times are 7pm Wednesdays to Saturdays, and 3pm on Sundays. Seating in this intimate venue is limited, so advance booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment, Covid-19 lockdown protocols will be observed.
Tickets cost R150 each, and booking is through Webtickets.
