Mike van Graan’s Green Man Flashing returns to the stage.
Directed by Malcolm Purkey, featuring Litha Bam, Michelle Douglas, Kate Liquorice and Sechaba Morojele. Green Man Flashing is a fast-paced political thriller written in a filmic style. It resonates more than ever before, as it explores themes of personal and political violence, as well as the lengths people will go to in the name of greater political good. All this is played out against the backdrop of a young democracy still dealing with its history, but where violence against women is of national crisis proportions.
Green Man Flashing takes on the challenge of deep moral and political questions for which there are no easy answers and provides insight into the very real themes that occupy thinking South Africans. The play is acknowledged as a quintessential South African play, and has become a matric setwork. It is regarded by many as a turning point for contemporary South African drama because of the way it dealt with contemporary politics.
