Fresh from sold-out performances in Grahamstown, the Hilton Festival and Johannesburg to the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg, comes the delightful fast-paced comedy, Sunday Morning, performed by James Cuningham and directed by Jenine Collocott.

Mat is a successful photographer who has his life exactly how he likes it - ordered, neat, and beautifully composed - until the day his girlfriend tells him she is pregnant. In an attempt to process this disturbing information, he goes out for a run. Straying from his regular route, he ventures into a strange part of the city where he makes a gruesome discovery that changes everything.

The story is infused with the kind of aggressive wit, acute observation, real suspense, imminent danger, selfish need and poignant humanity that are the basic elements of urban life in contemporary South Africa.

Sunday Morning is the second co-production with Jenine Collocott and her husband, the internationally acclaimed and awarded writer, Nick Warren. The first was the highly successful one-man show Dirt with James Cairns. The development of Sunday Morning was funded by Goethe Institut.

Sunday Morning has a short run at the Hexagon Theatre on the University of KwaZulu-Natal Pietermaritzburg campus from November 15 to 17 at 19h30. Tickets R80 (R60 seniors/students). Bookings on 033 260 5537 or email:
