Toast Coetzer
Lazarus is the first play from the pen of Patrick Cairns (read some of Patrick's short stories on NetFiction). Starring Ivan Abrahams (in the title role) and Thoko Ntshinga (as his companion Dorcas), Lazarus takes you on a brief journey around the minds and lives of two bergies on a random Cape Town street corner. Lazarus has just been released from jail and Dorcas finds him hung over as all hell and looking for his one shoe. They have breakfast and the two swop stories of their exploits since they had last seen one another. Lazarus claims that God has saved him, but Dorcas has her doubts. Lazarus is one of those "small" plays with few props and only the two actors, but their banter - which veers from hilarious to introspective and accidentally illuminating in seconds - soon uncovers some big issues (no pun intended) we encounter, and often deftly skirt, in our daily city lives. The play is directed by Luke Ellenbogen.

Bookings: Call The Little Theatre on 082 577 3559. Lazarus runs until the 6th of November 2005.
