Produced by CAST
He had it coming is a collection of sketches featuring mainly woman characters, drawn from previous satirical revues by the playwright (Bafana Republic, Pay Back the Curry, State Fracture and Land Acts).
Nancy Sekhokoane graduated from AFDA in 2018 and won the Fleur du Cap Award for Best Student. Faniswa Yisa is a veteran stage and film actress who won the Fleur du Cap Best Actress Award in 2018.
He had it coming picks up on themes in contemporary South African discourse and seeks to provide commentary mostly in a satirical form, inviting laughter as much as critical reflection.
There will be three performances at 19:30 in the Javett Arts Centre Auditorium, a preview on Tuesday 15 October, the premiere performance on Wednesday 16 October and a final show on Thursday 17 October. Entrance is free, but attendees will be invited to make donations after the show to support its tour to spaces where it will provide valuable opportunities for education and critical discussion.
