HERALDING AN EMERGENT NEW CULTURE? Play : Looking for Muruga
On 29 August 1990, the department of Drama, University of Durban-Westville, presented the première performance of "Looking for Muruga". It was an unusual and, in many respects, a controversial play. Written by lecturer Kriben Pillay, it recalls a former irreverent waiter at the Asoka Hotel who was well known for his songs, bawdy jokes and cutting comments.
