This is a very funny work written and directed by the KZN based Clinton Marius and performed by Shona Johnson.

The lower working class humour is both universal and uniquely South African.  It is universal in that parallels can be found all over the world and they are amusing wherever they are found, and unique in that it lays bare the colloquial life of the Durban suburb of Wentworth.

Who would have thought that a missing item of laundry could thoroughly entertain a sophisticated audience for an hour?  It does, and it does it most capably.  I loved it.

The Wits 969 Festival runs from 13-24 July 2016 at the Wits Theatre, Braamfontein.  It is curated by Gita Pather.  This is still on tonight (15 July) and tomorrow night (16 July 2016).
