Powerful new one-hander, ‘The Power To, by Pranesh Maharaj heads to Durban


PRANESH Maharaj, the actor who brought you Bhagwan gave me this life, comedies like Yamla Pagla and DocuTheatre in Late night with Mohammed Rafi and Remember Mukesh is staging the one-man show, The Power To, at the Stanmore Regional Hall on Friday, December 9 and at the Sri Sanatan Mandir Temple Hall on December 10.

His world is a dark lonely place deep inside his mind. It has always been that way even when he smiled, when he seemed happy; the darkness lurked. Krish has lost his job in a very peculiar way, forcing him to up and leave. In the midst of packing he encounters one last visitor to his home where he was born and raised.

The satire of life plays itself out as his jovial façade slowly morphs into the raging vengeance seeker and Krish must commit one final act before leaving this place or moving on would be unmanageable and impossible.

Maharaj uses music, dance, comedy and drama to tell this powerful story.

Tickets are R40 each and available at Maharaj’s Prayer Goods in the Phoenix Plaza (and Mt Edgecombe Plaza) for the Durban run. For the Stanger run they are at Raymens Supermarket in Stanger Manor.
