By popular demand, Raymond Rudolph stars in this one-man comedy, My Dog's Got No Nose, (written by Ron Aldridge) which is presented as a fundraiser in aid of the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, Cape Town.
Directed by Celia Musikanth, it is a journey around a stand-up comedian's first ever public performance - his lifelong dream covers everything from comedy, unrequited love, dogs, the facts of life, animal-lovers and a whole lot more.
In this funny, bitter-sweet story, we discover that the man and his "performance" are not quite what they seem. Hilarious, provocative & poignant, with dramatic twists in the tale, the show recently had its African premiere at the 2013 National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.
Performances are at 8 pm on Fri. 4 Oct, Sat. 5 Oct & Sun. 6 Oct. 2013.
