From writing about theatrics to directing his own, Jonathan shows that all can be done.
The National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) always strives to present us with quality performing arts and entertainment and they have done so once again by providing a platform for this diverse script play, Die Stoep which will be Windhoek-born Journalist, Jonathan Sasha’s debut play.
The onstage, Afrikaans, comedy-drama play is written and directed by Sasha himself and is inspired by the coloured community. The play hopes to portray the coloured community and Baster family through the flavourful use of Afrikaans, to interpret the ups and downs combined with humour that’s unique to this particular community. Die Stoep will also be touching on subjects like life, love and loss as well as alcohol abuse as a mental illness.
Taking to the stage will be actor from Windhoek High School, Ethen Januarie and Namibia College of the Arts student Chantal Magano Kambrude among others with Windhoek High School’s very own English teacher, Vernon Sawyers as the composer, Music Director and actor on the theatre play.
The curtains will open at the NTN’s Backstage Venue on 31 October till 2 November. Come be part of this moving play by buying tickets for N$ 80 dollars, students and senior citizens will have a discount price of N$ 50. All tickets are available across Computicket outlets nationwide.
