Mark Banks is Banksrupt!
The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre: 6 - 24 November 2013
South African comedy legend Mark Banks is back – and this time he is going for broke in his new one-man show Banksrupt! which comes to the Elizabeth Sneddon theatre in Durban from 6 – 24 November

After several years of working on the biggest comedy line-up shows in South Africa, Banks makes a triumphant return. The legendary multi-purpose improviser and lighting speed anarchist just keeps getting better! The Royal Albert Hall, the Hammersmith Apollo and the PE Opera House are better off having hosted this iconic showman.

Banksrupt! has been years in the making and in consultation with two wise men, a babbling gnome and Kobus Wiese, the show promises to be his greatest comedy work yet.

The show, which is being produced by Whacked: Special Project, incorporates stand-up, sketch and video making it one that the world could not ignore.
Bookings through Computicket.

Blue Monday Platform
Catalina Theatre: Monday 11 November at 6pm
If you are a young artist who would like to utilise the stage, then this is your moment! And if you are keen to check out a variety of new acts – come and see what is bubbling under on the entertainment scene.

Blue Monday Platform is a forum to encourage young performing artists to explore, create and innovate. It is a platform that operates on a basic "open mic" theory where the Platform is yours for up to fifteen minutes. Participants can perform anything from poetry to rap, sketches to play excerpts, mime to music.

Blue Monday Platform is on a mission to change the perception of arts and get the youth back into theatre foyers, and also as a showcase for eventors, theatre managers and the public to see what is out there and available. The Blue Monday Platform is trying to make theatre universal, accessible and appropriate for all walks of life - and appealing and challenging to youth to engage with their culture.

Get involved in Blue Monday Platform for this seed of an experience. Entry is free and all are welcome. The bar is open, and it is a perfect opportunity for networking.
