Over the Hill
by Paul Slabolepszy. A short play about rugby players, set in the dressing rooms. Quintessentially South African, it is a comedy with a strong element of pathos in its sympathetic view of ordinary people facing mini-crises in their lives. One part of a two-hander, of which Under the Oaks is the first part. First performed at the close of the 1985 Grahamstown Festival as a double-bill with Under the Oaks starring Jonathan Rands. James Borthwick and Kate Edwards, before moving to the Market Theatre. Published in Mooi Street and Other Moves by Witwatersrand University Press (1994).?*(See Gosher, 1988) One-act. Cast: mixed. Published in Mooi Street and other Moves and South Africa Plays. The latter published by Nick Hern Books.
National Arts Festival programme, 1985.
