Event Description

Chester Missing is South Africa’s most famous puppet, outside of Parliament. His sidekick is double EMMY nominated ventriloquist, Conrad Koch. In this side-splitting comedy Conrad wants Chester to help South Africa heal its racial divisions, but Chester has some awkward questions. Shame. Guided by Conrad’s Master’s Degree in social anthropology these two recipients of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation’s Anti-Racism Award tear into the big questions about apartheid, white privilege and people who say ‘I don’t see colour’. At least that’s the plan. But when puppets are involved nothing ever goes to plan. Ask the Guptas. ‘Nice Racists’, because being nice doesn’t mean we are not racist. Tell Helen.

Show duration: 1h 15mins.



The new Bioscope location is set to be a 47 seater cinema. We are however selling less in order for there to be space to sit apart from other members of the public. We ask you to please keep your mask on the entire time within the cinema premises. Drinks and snacks will be on sale and can be consumed during the film, but please consider those around you when your mask is off for this. 44 Stanley is largely an open air shopping centre, and The Bioscope has a great outside space directly outside the cinema that public can make use of. Within the cinema, we will also make use of temperature reading, air filtering, and constant cleaning to make sure that The Bioscope remains a safe and hygienic experience.

After purchasing tickets, if you experience any COVID related symptoms, or come into contact with anyone who has tested positive, we ask you to please not attend the screening. Please understand that The Bioscope will not be able to refund you this ticket. We are happy however for you to give your ticket to someone else that can attend. If this is not possible, we would be happy to exchange your ticket for a future screening. This can all be coordinated via email at [email protected]
