So Solo returns with limited run of Kafka’s Ape, Nine to Fivers Anthem and Broken Plates.

Due to public demand, the So Solo festival of one-person plays has been extended for a limited season. Kafka’s Ape, Nine to Fivers Anthem and Broken Plates will be staged on the weekends of the 4th; 5th and6th and 11th and 12th December at Wits Theatre in Braamfontein.

“These three plays met with an outstanding reception from both critics and audiences. Each of these plays emanate from very different creative and artistic impulses, but all feature amazing performances by the solo artistes Swankie Mafoko; Tony Miyambo and Renos Spanoudes,” said Gita Pather, Director of Wits Theatre.

“It is extremely difficult within a Festival format to include more than two or three performances and so we have chosen to re-stage them in order that they meet the criteria to be considered for theatre awards as well as to give audiences another chance to watch these fine shows.”

The So Solo festival was presented for the second year by Wits Theatre, and ran in September and October. It was a successful season of 16 plays that showcased a remarkable range of performances from South African actors and directors.
