    Winning the top accolade at the recent National Arts Festival Fringe is no easy feat amongst over 200 shows. But Craig Morris achieved the almost impossible by winning a Gold Standard Bank Ovation Award with Greig Coetzee’s Johnny Boskak is Feeling Funny. Morris will be in Pietermaritzburg for one day only at the end of July, and local theatre-goers will have the opportunity to see this remarkable show. Coetzee studied in Pietermaritzburg and taught for many years at GHS, before becoming a professional writer and actor.

     

    Where does Johnny Boskak fit in the new South Africa? Is he a white trash dinosaur? Or is he the last cowboy hero in boots and blue jeans? What we know is that he’s on the road, looking for love, redemption, an AK47 and the quickest way out of Secunda…

    Craig Morris stars in Greig Coetzee’s award-winning spin-off to White Men with Weapons!

    After the magical collaboration that birthed Blood Orange, Craig Morris celebrates the creative genius that is Greig’s writing. Johnny Boskak is superb writing, blended with Craig Morris’ inimitable physical performance style. Under Roslyn Wood-Morris’s empathetic theatrical eye this is theatre at its’ best! Not to be missed!
