(Stuart Cairns & Westley Cockrell)

Hilarious Cape Town stand-up comedy duo – Stuart Cairns and Westley Cockrell – will visit Durban to present their highly energetic show about the whacky journey of becoming stand-up comedians!

Directed by highly acclaimed comedian/director, Rob Van Vuuren, The Plothole delves into the lives of two odd-ball characters as they explore the process that goes into creating comedy and the hilariously embarrassing trials and tribulations that many comedians face while pursuing comedy careers … from keeping a day job, to impressing their parents, to “dying” on stage!

Their creative use of props and audience interaction guarantees an hour of hearty laughter!

The show has been a smash hit at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival for two years running, as well as enjoying critical acclaim from consecutive sold-out runs in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

The Plothole has performances on August 26 and 27 at 20h00 at Seabrooke’s Theatre, Durban High School, St Thomas Road, Musgrave. Tickets R100 at
