Two Gents Productions present MAGETSI

BY Kathy Clarke | 29-Jan-2013
Two Gents are experts in reinterpretation: taking, and reshaping classic European drama and presenting it through the eyes of Zimbabwe.
Venue: Lennox Theatre, Riverside Theatres
Address: cnr Church & Market Sts Parramatta 2150
Now, in this self-written show, Two Gents present a postcard from Zimbabweans to their counterparts abroad; inspired by the experiences of an estimated 3 million Zimbabweans that now live abroad and their own encounter of returning home. Democratic – a young man that goes back to Zimbabwe after ten years in England to bury his father, Trinity – a newly returned woman searching for a partner in Harare, Ambuya’s campaign for electricity and an eclectic revolving disc of characters and situations provide a lens for the consideration of ‘home’ and what it means to be a ‘ diasporan’ in your own country.

 This is it. This is Harare eclectic and electric. This is MAGETSI! DIRECTOR: Arne Pohlmeier PERFORMERS: Denton Chikura and Tonderai Munyevu Dates & Times: 7:30pm, Friday 15 March 2013 Tickets: Adult $47, Conc. $42, F/T Student $30, Youth 30&U $37* *Transaction fees may apply
