A Blue-Collar comedy
with SELLO SEBOTSANE, MARIETJIE BOTHMA and JOSIAS DOS MOLEELE
Written & directed by JOSIAS DOS MOLEELE
A fast-paced, multi-conventional play, CALL US CRAZY, previews on the 18th June at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square is essentially an hilarious comedy that sees South Africa laughing at itself! The play gives humorous, flash-glimpses into South African life in the townships, rural and urban areas, unconvincing parliamentary debates, challenges in government and more uniquely South African scenarios.
CALL US CRAZY is social commentary at its best starring three of SA’s best loved
TV personalities - SELLO SEBOTSANE (Stokvel, Jock of the Bushveld and more recently Mzanzi Magic’s Broken Vows), MARIETJIE BOTHMA (TV presenter, MC for Government events, the Kasi Mlungu in the King Pie TV adverts) and JOSIAS DOS MOLEELE (Rhythm City, Binnelanders and director of our current production Jobe).
It tells the story of a disillusioned road construction worker, Oompie, whose mission is to tar all the roads in the world. Having worked for the same construction company over 27 years, Oompie breaks ranks, after concluding that he works for an ungrateful and chauvinistic employer. While Oompie's dream to tar the world sounds like an impossible and idiotic idea, an ambitious character emerges. He succeeds in opening his own construction company, which he aptly calls Vuka! Africa Road and Paving Construction Company!
