The Mother of All Eating, starring Luntu Masiza and Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi and directed by Christopher Weare, will play for two nights, Friday July 19, at 7.30pm, and Saturday July 20, at 4pm, at the Drama Factory, 25 Comprop Square, Henry Vos Close, Asla Business Park, Strand. Who are “the men that eat” and what accounts for their rapacious appetites that are never satisfied? The ultimate price is paid for corruption, but who will foot the bill?
The Mother of All Eating is a satire by Zakes Mda. The play explores the debilitating culture of corruption and greed known as “eating”.  The culture has become synonymous with corrupt state officials who enrich themselves by abusing government funds. Set in Lesotho the 1992, the play exposes the catastrophic effects of greed, and the tragic effects that accompany unchecked corruption. Under Chris Weare’s direction, this pair of actors become a parade of rogues. This tragicomedy bites close to the bone in this sharp and witty piece. Tickets cost R130 (standard) and R110 (concession). Visit to book. For more information, contact 073 215 2290.
