THE Chronicles of Jack – a quirky tragi-comedy about the life of a rural student at a city university – is a new play written for DUT by Mbasa Tsetsana. It will be performed by DUT students at the Courtyard theatre for two public performances on 18 and 19 August.

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.

The action is performed to a soundtrack of African traditional songs, and newly-composed original numbers.

The production was written for DUT drama undergraduates to allow the students to experience an intense, high-impact rehearsal process: the whole project from start to finish will take 10 days – with the rehearsal process itself scheduled to take only 48 hours.

For more information contact the Departmental Secretary, Lebohang Sibisi on (031) 3732194 / [email protected]  The double bill starts at 6pm. Tickets are R30 at the door, students R20.
