About

"Seven and one? 

Eight again. And sometimes nine" 


An ambitious pupil dreams of getting the total doctorate and seeks the help of a popular professor. The professor promises to teach the pupil all he knows so that she can achieve her academic goals, but what happens if he knows "nothing"? A comic drama with absurdity, nonsense dialogue and ignorance. Will the pupil be prepared for her academic prospects, or will her dream turn into a nightmare? 

 

“Sewe en een?

En dan weer agt. En soms nege.”

 

‘n Ambisieuse student droom daarvan om ‘n volle doktorsgraad te kry en vra die hulp van ‘n gevestigde professor. Die professor belowe om haar alles te leer wat hy weet sodat sy haar akademiese doelwitte kan bereik, maar wat gebeur as hy “niks” weet nie? ‘n Komiese drama met absurditeit, nonsens-dialoog en onkunde. Sal die student voorbereid wees vir haar akademiese vooruitsigte, of sal haar droom in ‘n nagmerrie verander?
