Students perform in Chronicles of Jack

CHRONICLES of Jack – a quirky original tragi-comedy about the life of a rural student at a city university – is a new play especially written for DUT by Mbasa Tsetsana, which will be performed by DUT students at the Courtyard Theatre on 18 and 19 August at 6pm.

The production takes a wry look at the experiences of a young student from rural Eastern Cape, and his challenges to adapt to an urban city campus as part of the Fees Must Fall generation – about some of the social complexities, clashing ideologies and tussle between tradition and self-discovery.

The production was written especially for DUT drama undergraduates to allow the students to experience a very intense, high-impact rehearsal process.

It is directed by DUT drama student Sphephelo Dlamini and Dr Pamela Tancsik. Dlamini has also composed the original music. The production features 24 students chosen from an open audition from first, second and third years.

Contact the Departmental Secretary, Lebohang Sibisi on 031 373 2194 or [email protected] Tickets are R30 for adults and R20 for students, at the door.
