MARK BANKS in
BANKSRUPT
30th June – 11th July
South African comedy legend Mark Banks is back – and this time he is going for broke in his new one-man show BANKSRUPT, to be staged for two weeks only. After several years of working on the biggest comedy line-up shows in South Africa, MARK BANKS makes a triumphant return. The show promises to be his greatest comedy work yet.

“The title is about where we are as a nation – we’re broke – financially, morally and mentally. I want to sketch out the villains behind this sorry state we’re in, obviously with a tongue in cheek flavour, to keep it interesting” says Banks.

Directed by arch perfectionist STEVEN STEAD and co-scripted by SUE MONTEREGGE, SEVEN DEADLY SINS is deliciously absurd theatre, made palatable through all-round excellence and terrifying relevance.

In an hilarious showcase of weird and wonderful escapades, AARON McILROY and LISA BOBBERT probe the why’s and wherefores of lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride!
