Maeshni Naicker is set to star in Salon Sue, a sassy new stage comedy by Clinton Marius
Hugely popular radio, theatre and film star, Maeshni Naicker (Broken Promises, Florida Road, Curse of Highway Sheila, Keeping Up With The Kandasamys) will make her debut solo appearance in Salon Sue, an achingly funny new comedy about hair stylists and their clients. Written and directed by Clinton Marius, the production will be presented at Sibaya’s iZulu Theatre from 28 to 30 July 2017 by Copy Dog, the multi-award winning production house behind a string of stage hits, including Lollipop Lane, B!*ch Stole My Doek and Mystic Twisters, among others.
“Salon Sue is a jolly tumble through a working day in a small hair salon, showcasing the extraordinary versatility of this much-loved actress,” says Marius: “I love working with Maeshni. Her contribution to my radio drama, Lollipop Lane, which aired on Lotus FM for four years, was a highlight of the show’s appeal with thousands of listeners who tuned in for their daily dose of comedy on air. Maeshni’s unerring gift for delivering a comic line to perfection proved itself onstage as well, when I brought two of my plays, Ladies of Lollipop Lane and Mystic Twisters to Sibaya in recent seasons. Audiences adore her, and they can expect a real firecracker with Salon Sue.”
“I am looking forward to my first solo stage production,” says Naicker. “Clinton has a great eye and ear for comedy, and together we are going to bring you a crazy-beautiful show.”
