Montecasino Studio Theatre Presents


It is arguably true that time spent in national service has receded in the memories of many in South Africa.

However, Borderline brings it back in vivid colour – the loss of home and loved ones, the indoctrination and deliberate obliteration of individuality during basic training.

The fear and horrors experienced in action, and, yes, the intense camaraderie which flourished in such adverse circumstances.

Somewhat tongue in cheek, this piece takes an entertaining look at one naive young man’s journey, through this rite of passage and how the infectious and inspirational music of the Beatles, kept his heart and soul together as his perceptions of the world changed.

Borderline, showing at Montecasino’s Studio Theatre from 22 June to 9 July, is directed by Vanessa Harris of Followspot Productions, was inspired by her father Dr Steve Harris’s experiences during basic training in the 70s.
