A brand new show from Melanie Kisten
Bringing it back home, she’s back by public demand! Durban theatre luminary Melanie Kisten returns to The Globe with her hit production “THE BREAD, THE PORRIDGE AND THE MIX MASALA” in yet another twist with a different tale.
The story begins in a rather palatial house where one man has worked hard from being a simple mechanic to becoming the owner of a large logistics company. Unfortunately, he doesn’t last long in this tale as he dies suddenly at a party. The tale continues with two split sons (a gambler and a drunkard) who are trudging to find their place in society and the household. Added to this you have two daughters-in-law (a gold digger and an outcast) who are at loggerheads with each other both craving the attention of their mother-in-law and both seeking the position of top daughter-in-law to ensure that their husband gets a greater share of the business. Their evil plans are thwarted by a flaming hot spoon mother-in-law and a police inspector who brings more chaos into this already corrupted family.
Stir well to 90 degrees…simmer down and we’ve got mixed masala! Melanie Kisten has infused comedy, drama, dance and music into a light hearted story that will keep you at the edge of your seats. THE BREAD, THE PORRIDGE AND THE MIX MASALA show focuses on expressing the hardships of marriage, family and betrayal, laced with comedy that’s bound to leave you in stiches.
Audiences should be ready for a rollercoaster ride of emotions, be prepared to embrace the music and be enthralled by the high energy, emotionally charged dance sequences by the Melanie Kisten Dance Troupe (MKDA).
The cast features Melanie Kisten, Bhavanie Kisten, Desiree Kisten, Lyle D Chellan, Thiru Reddy, Sagie Kisten, Elaine Govender, Kubeshan Naidoo and Lucian Govender.
