Clive Scott has always made people laugh, whether it was as the beloved Ted Dixon (aka “Hey Stupid!”) in The Villagers and Isidingo or in his various roles in “Oh George”, “Life Begins at 40”, “The John Ross Story” and “River Horse Lake”. You just have to look at him…
Now, this beloved South African veteran of stage and screen has gathered all his experience, wisdom, funniness and poignancy to bring you a one-man show encompassing all of it. Clive Scott stars in his autobiographical one man show, Warts and All, landing at Cape Town’s prestigious Galloway Theatre for 3 nights only. An iconic tribute to some of South Africa’s best loved theatre moments, you had better bring the tissues – for the tears of laughter that are sure to roll.
“Warts and All” is a South African road trip of note taking you from Parkview, Johannesburg to Springs, Cape Town and Salisbury. We even pop across the pond for 12 years to London (yes, the big one in England), and then back into the heady world of South African stars and a few stripes.
Theatre in South Africa has long maintained a special role in connecting us to our past, our present and hope for our future. Clive Scott is one of the few actors whose 55 year career, storytelling prowess, wealth of experience and insight, is able to cast light on places we have been to enabling us to understand where we are now so that we can decide where to from here. And all this with a belly full of laughter and a heart full of joy.
