(Leeandra Reddy)

The makers of Buckled, Queens of Comedy and 150 years and still laughing! present another show with a distinctly Indian flavour at the Playhouse over the festive season.

As the name suggests, Old School is a nostalgic look at the “glory days” .Through a collection of comedy sketches, it takes the audience on a reminiscent journey, highlighting all the hilarious characters that shaped or possibly misshaped our futures.

Past experiences inform future choices and even though we become better and bigger at what we do, we lose so much on the way to improvement. Old School allows audiences to sit back and reflect on those lighter moments in life: a time of simple pleasures, innocence and passive acceptance of the ridiculous.

Complete with quick costume changes and nostalgic music, Old School features three top acting talents who have taken the South African television industry by storm: Meren Reddy (Gary in City Sesla), Leeanda Reddy (Priya in Isidingo) and Kaseran Pillay (Mr Bones 2).

Directed by Krijay Govender, Old School runs in the Playhouse Opera from December 21 to 23 and December 28 to 30. Booking is at Computicket.
