Tafelkop writer, Collins Matsepe invades Market Theatre Laboratory.

TAFELKOP – All roads led to the Market Theatre Laboratory for TsaMmu New Writing Festival recently where a number of 20 Market Theatre Playwrights graduates were showcasing their work alongside 10 directors and 34 actors.

The Tafelkop’s Collins Matsepe, a writer and Somafco Trust 2017 winning essayist was amongst the 20 playwright graduates.
His playscript titled ‘A stitch in Time’ was also staged by an amazing cast of brilliant performers; Boipelo Mahabane from Andrew Buckland’s ‘Wordsfail’, Canzi Mangcu and Chantelle Thomas who had the audience eating from the palm of their hand.
The play was directed by Ncumisa Ndimeni of the Standard Bank Gold Ovation Award winning play – ‘Hani The Legacy’, ‘The Saga of a City Hermit’, ‘Three Women (Break the silence)’ and Student Merit Best Original Work – ‘Pop iCherry.’

The Market Theatre Laboratory was co-founded by the late Barney Simon (cofounder of Market Theatre) and Dr. John Kani (Actor, writer, director) in 1989 in order to train actors, directors, playwrights and arts administrators.
The playwriting course was founded by Omphile Molusi who also facilitated the writing classes alongside Monde Mayephu.
Some of the well-known names who also enrolled for the playwriting course and showcased their work are actresses Esmeralda Bihl and Khanyisile Zwane.

Matsepe said: “Theatre is the greatest of all art forms and it’s so sad that we lack theatres in rural districts such as Sekhukhune.”
The writer said he was thinking of bringing his theatre production to Groblersdal as soon as he raised enough funds in order to share his knowledge and acquired skills with fellow local writers.

He added the success of it would depend on the sponsors and encouraged the local government and businesses to support the arts.
