George Herald - - Arts & Entertainment -

The ta­len­ted pla­y­wri­ter, poet, ac­tor, mu­si­ci­an and co­me­di­an Johna­than N­ka­la will be per­for­ming his acclai­med o­n­e­man s­how, The Cros­sing, at the Oak­hurst In­su­ran­ce Ge­or­ge Arts The­a­t­re on Sun­day 14 Oc­to­ber at 17:00.

The Cros­sing is the tru­ly in­spi­ra­ti­o­nal sto­ry of this man's jour­ney in se­arch of a bet­ter li­fe. His des­pe­ra­te quest saw him il­le­gal­ly cros­sing the bor­der be­t­ween Zim­bab­we and South A­fri­ca ten y­e­ars ago, fa­cing in­cre­di­ble hards­hips, from mal­nu­tri­ti­on to swim­ming a­cross a cro­co­di­le-in­fes­ted Lim­po­po ri­ver, in se­arch of his dre­ams. To­day Johna­than is a le­gal tem­po­ra­ry re­si­dent of South A­fri­ca.

The po­pu­lar s­how has been per­for­med in the­a­tres and at schools and u­ni­ver­si­ties a­round South A­fri­ca and Zim­bab­we. It tou­red six sta­tes in the U­ni­ted Sta­tes of A­me­ri­ca… and is fi­nal­ly co­ming to Ge­or­ge.

The tic­kets in­clu­de chee­se and wi­ne and net­wor­king op­por­tu­ni­ties. Tic­kets are R100 and can be boug­ht at Com­pu­tic­ket or at the the­a­t­re of­fi­ce.
