Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Nh­lal­wenhle Ng­wenya

THEATRE for Ev­ery­one in part­ner­ship with Al­liance Fran­caise will to­mor­row stage its last play of the year ti­tled My Dream at the Bu­l­awayo Theatre.

Theatre for Ev­ery­one started early this year as a monthly pro­gramme set to pro­mote and sup­port young up­com­ing ac­tors, build up theatre au­di­ence whilst cre­at­ing a mar­ketable, sus­tain­able and wor­thy theatre in­dus­try.

The ini­tia­tive is set to re­sume in Fe­bru­ary 2017 with fresh and en­ter­tain­ing pro­duc­tions.

In its last 2016 of­fer­ing Theatre for Ev­ery­one is set to take its au­di­ence on a spir­i­tual jour­ney ti­tled My Dream.

The play is a story of a boy whose body is a ves­sel of three spir­its strug­gling to be dom­i­nant and be in charge of the boy.

Theatre for Ev­ery­one project co­or­di­na­tor, Nonhlalo Dube said the play aims to usher its au­di­ence into con­flicts that are preva­lent in the spir­i­tual realm.

“My Dream is a story of a boy who lives with three spir­its in his body, the spir­its be­ing in­tel­lec­tual, voice and the dream. The con­flict be­gins when each spirit wants to take over his life but he thinks it’s an in­ner con­flict. How­ever, he later finds out that it’s be­yond him,” said Dube.

Dube added that life in the phys­i­cal realm has a se­ri­ous connection with the spir­i­tual realm, but the lat­ter is mis­un­der­stood by peo­ple.

“The play is an in­trigu­ing story that ex­poses how the spir­i­tual world can be big­ger and more pow­er­ful than a per­son such that it can some­times con­trol them against their will,” she said.

My Dream was penned by an up­com­ing, promis­ing play­wright and actor Vusumuzi Twala and is di­rected by Zenzo Ny­athi, who is a theatre trainer, direc­tor, con­sul­tant and an award win­ning actor with over 22 years stage ex­pe­ri­ence.

The cast con­sists of Nozith­elo Vundla, Love­ness Gava, Lone­some Tapiwa and young Bruce Mutero.
