Written and performed by Francis Mennigke, Morgue is a dark comedy about a journey into the underworld of first world bureaucracy and will be presented at the Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse on February 6.

Morgue can only be described as a masterful one-man comedy, performed in the traditions of physical theatre by the talented Francis Mennigke. An old boy of Michaelhouse, Mennigke has recently returned from Canada. The production was a 2014 Ovation winner at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.

As world domination by a corporate colossus looms, Slim, a coroner with multiple personality disorder, becomes compelled to find out why three fresh cadavers have taken control of his mind.

There will be one performance of Morgue on February 6 at 19h30 in the Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse. Tickets R80 booked through Mrs Angela Jonsson on email or call 033 234 1314 (Weekdays between 08h00 and 13h00)
