11 October to 22 October
Geraldine Naidoo’s multi-award winning play HOOT is a triumphant milestone in South African theatre.
HOOT, written by Geraldine Naidoo and performed by Matthew Ribnick, is the hysterical and colourful journey of a rich white man who loses everything and ends up becoming a minibus taxi driver. This is Naidoo and Ribnick’s second collaboration - their first was The Chilli Boy, which played to great acclaim last year at the theatre.
"one of the greatest theatrical pleasures of the last few years ... nothing short of astonishing" - Peter Tromp
