Wrongly Accused

Wrongly Accused follows a young man from De Doorns who finds himself in deep trouble with the law when he is accused of robbing an Indian cellphone-shop owner. Waseef plays six characters to hilarious effect, blending pathos, comic timing, Ghoema songs and ballads, to create a dynamite theatre experience.

Waseef is one of Cape Town’s hottest rising stars, and has impressed audiences in productions such as Vocal is Lekka alongside a star-studded line-up including Terry Fortune, Loukmaan Adams and Bongile Mantsai; and more recently, the a cappella musical A Town Called Fokol Lutho.

“Wrongly Accused is a disarmingly fresh take on the old story of ‘man appears in court and pleads not guilty’”, says Basil Appollis. “Waseef takes a walk into the courts where thousands of people appear unnoticed every day and comes out with a theatrical winner.”
The multi-talented entertainer brings all of his talent to this insightful and side-splitting slice of life comedy drama.
