(Philani Dube)

Meet Bro Six Two is a hard-hitting and tense tale about the journey of Six Two Moshoeshoe’s survival. He is a former dice gambler who tells his story of unfair dismissal, police corruption and the intensity of fraud levels that may provide a better insight into the high rate of unemployment in South Africa.

Brought up in a rural area in KwaZulu-Natal; Six Two and his friend face the reality of starvation and are forced into a routine of stealing vegetables at Meneer van Wyk’s farm. Tired of the exhausting tsotsi lifestyle, he decides to change direction by looking for a job in the nearest town. Using forged certificates and the right connections, his plan succeeds. Once accepted, he cheers and celebrates hoping to live a better life but his hope is shortened as his new-found opportunity proves to be the beginning of his nightmares.

Meet Bro Six Two is written by Samson M Mlambo, directed by Sandile Dladla and performed by fellow DUT drama and production studies student, Philani Dube. The stage manager is Sfiso Innocent Phohlo.

Meet Bro Six Two has performances at Stable Theatre on November 03 at 19h30 and on November 6 at 15h30. Tickets R50. All bookings through Stable Theatre on 074 883 3995
