Spoof Full of Sugar
The original text
Consisting of 30 different sketches, it has a loosely woven story about a once famous South African actress found murdered during a performance of "Beauty and the Beast" and how an inept police force is simply not interested in solving the case. They would rather read gossip magazines in the safety of their control room. The piece includes spoofs of high maintenance celebs, soapies, TV show, high-profile critics and anything to do with that show business. Produced by produced by Andrew Ross of MadDog Productions and Lyall Ramsden of e'bluebird Productions, the piece was first performed at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square, Johannesburg in 2009.
