25th November – Rob Caskie | An African Odyssey
November 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmR150.00
Engaging Story Telling – AN AFRICAN ODYSSEY
“Our Young Country has a fascinating and complex history” This story deals with early inhabitants and the arrival of the Nguni people. One of them became the military genius Shaka, with major implications. Religious persecution and poor standards of living result in a miscellany of Europeans arriving in the Cape after 1652. British rule, taxation and slavery eventually leads to the Great Trek. Some emphasis will be given to the development of the mighty Zulu nation, particularly appropriate in Natal’s history. Along with the discovery of diamonds and gold, it creates a kaleidoscope of characters and intrigue worth sharing. As always Rob shares these stories from a human perspective and the character sketches are beguiling.
From time to time Cat Simone and Paul Spence from the KZN Midlands do bespoke, eclectic dinner theatres. Cat and Paul’s music theatres have proven to be a smash hit with patrons, appealing to the 45+ age group.
A few times a year we host fabulous bands like Runaway Train Cult and Atmosferic Jazz whose style of music very much appeals to our general clientele.
