THE Singh Siblings in association with The Playhouse Company present a new production of award-winning playwright Ashwin Singh’s To House.

First staged at The Playhouse in 2006, the production runs in the Drama Theatre from 5 to 7 October.

One of Durban’s best known international theatre pieces, it remains as relevant now as it was a decade ago, with South Africa’s continuing racial divisions and increasing class conflicts.

Directed by legendary South African theatre-maker Ralph Lawson, the new staging of To House features a distinguished cast including Michael Gritten, Menzi Mkwane, Rowin Munsamy, Sivani Chinappan, Sandile Mthembu and Ashwin Singh.

The classic drama is set in a multi-cultural sectional titles development in a typical middle-class Durban suburb. It is essentially about the clash of the conservative cultures which dominate the Durban socio-political landscape in post-Apartheid South Africa. Jason and Sanjay have a tentative friendship based on mutual needs and their increasing condemnation of hotshot lawyer, Sibusiso Khumalo, who lives in the same sectional titles development.

To House runs each evening at 7.30pm from Thursday 5 to Saturday 7 October, as well as on Saturday afternoon at 3pm. Tickets are R100, with concessions for pensioners and students. Booking is via Computicket on 0861 915 8000, online at, or by calling The Playhouse Box Office on 031 369 9540/ 369 9596 (office hours).
