Phillip Nikiwe Wins School Play Award

www.MyPE.co.za: New
Brighton primary school, Phillip Nikiwe was recently awarded a “Crime
Challenge” trophy for their play about crime in South Africa. The
trophy was donated by Stepping Stones One Stop Youth Justice Centre in
Port Elizabeth as part of its community upliftment initiative.

Simphiwe VikilahleThe junior school’s
drama teacher, Miss Gcobeka Foloti approached playwright, Simphiwe
Vikilahle from Striving Arts Theatre Company to put together a play for
the school. The accomplished young artist began his theatre career in
1992 whilst still at school in Port Elizabeth. He fell in love with
acting, and his beautiful way with words made an impact on his drama
teacher who encouraged him to pursue play writing as a career.

“When the school approached me to write a play for them, I was
delighted,” says Vikilahle. “I love working with young kids and
inspiring them through drama.”

Vikilahle put together a very heartfelt piece in a relatively short
space of time. “The school said that the play had to be about crime,
but I wanted it to be something very original, not the usual ‘crime’
stories that all South Africans tell!”

The play, titled “Iziko Lomlilo” is about a community terrorised by a
serial killer. Taking the law into their own hands, they hunt down a
man who they think is guilty. However, the community kills the wrong
man. Through a twist in the tale, it is eventually revealed that a
priest is the real serial killer and he eventually confesses because
his guilty conscience can’t take it any more.

“The moral of the story is that one must be careful to lay judgement on
someone because they might be innocent,” says Arts and Culture teacher,
Miss Gcobeka Foloti. “Also, your conscience will eventually get the
better of you!”

“It was also great to have the kids work with such a talented writer
and director like Simphiwe Vikilahle. We are very grateful for the time
that he put in to help us,” says Foloti.

Vikilahle has worked with some of the Eastern Cape’s greats including
Dr. Winston Ntshona. His play, “Two Eyes of the Bird” took first place
in GM South Africa competition and he received an award for best
original script writer. Another one of his plays, “The Journey” has
been performed at the Port Elizabeth Opera House and at the Grahamstown
Arts Festival.

Vikilahle is currently working on a new play based on a traditional
story called “The gift from the stones.” The play will encompass music,
dance and physical theatre.

He is part of the EC Talent website database which
offers a public showcase and recognition for Eastern Cape artists.
