Comedy savant Dayne Rathbone and his international rugby star brother Clyde perform their brand new, absurdly funny comedy play “It’s Me Mandela” at The Playhouse Theatre in July.
Since starting his comedy career in Canberra in 2010, hilariously-awkward South African emigrant Dayne has gone on to national and international success.
In 2012 he supported Anthony Jeselnik (USA) on his sold out Australian Tour, and 2013 saw him nominated for the Best Comedy award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and Best Newcomer at the Sydney Comedy Festival.
Making his hotly anticipated acting debut is ACT Brumby (and former Wallaby) rugby player, Clyde Rathbone. The brothers spent the first 20 years of their lives in South Africa where they experienced the country’s revolution from an oppressive apartheid government to a democracy under the leadership of Nelson Mandela. ‘It’s Me Mandela’ brings their story, and South Africa’s, to the world.
Proceeds go to two African charities: Médecins Sans Frontières, and Funda Nenja.
When: Saturday 5 July, 8:00pm
Where: Canberra Theatre Centre, The Playhouse Theatre
