“One joyous hit after another!” The Times London

Directed and Choreographed by Shelley Lothian

30 July – 22 August Theatre on The Bay

Over the past two years sensational pianist Rocco de Villiers (kortbroek, langkouse) and much-loved conductor Richard Cock have sparked off each other at several concerts, and it seemed inevitable that this would become something more. They have put together a musical extravaganza, which will deliver an astral explosion of music, fun and anecdotes about life, the arts and South Africa. With song and captivating piano playing they take you on a journey you will not forget in a hurry… from Tchaikovsky to Chopin, from Zambezi to Sarie Marais with singing, whistling, and piano duets and of course featuring music by Rocco de Villiers himself, this journey is cheerful, poignant and entertaining. It will be a “happening”, so don’t miss it!

No under 13’s

A gripping, powerful play that deals with complex family relationships and the consequences of unresolved trauma. BORDERLINE, written by South Africa`s most prolific and award-winning playwright, is shot through with dark humour and surprising twists and turns! 
Businessman Raymond Kruger (Coleman) and his wife of less than two years, Wellness and Beauty shop owner Faith Dlamini (Job), are in the process of emigrating to Canada. As the only child of a single parent, Faith has foreseen the emotional impact this move will inevitably have on both her and her doting mother, and prepares for it by tackling the issue of loss and separation ahead.
Raymon’s situation is entirely different. His mother is deceased, his sister lives in the UK and he and his abusive father (Slabolepszy), a 1970’s SA Border War veteran living in the Western Cape, have not spoken to each other in over twenty years.
On the eve of their departure, faith convinces her husband to reach out and make peace with the old man who, unable to deal with his own demons back in the day, made the lives of all those in his orbit a perpetual torment.
An exciting new South African play, not to be missed.

Agatha Christie’s WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION

Directed By Alan Swerdlow

According to her autobiography, Witness for the Prosecution was one of Agatha Christie’s favourites of all her works, stating: ‘One night at the theatre stands out in my memory especially; the first night of Witness for the Prosecution. I can safely say that that was the only first night I have enjoyed… It was one of my plays that I like best myself.’

Suddenly the Storm

 

Suddenly the Storm, Paul Slabolepszy’s highly acclaimed award-winning play is set in the far East Rand, the home of an ageing ex-cop and his much younger wife.  A Storm approaches…  Namhla Gumede, born on 16 June 1976 arrives, seeking answers to questions that have remained buried for 40 long years.  What begins as a smouldering dark comedy turns suddenly into a roller-coaster ride of startling revelations, of rage and recrimination, before the storm finally breaks.

This is theatre that throws up a whirlwind of mixed emotions – greed, love, loss and healing – touching on distinctly South African topics that make this country so rich and rewarding for those who can brave its storms.

The production is directed by Bobby Heaney.  The experience and proven track record of both Slabolepszy and Heaney coming together once again creates the perfect storm of talent – powerful acting, inspired writing and incisive direction – promising to make this new production a truly memorable event.

17-27 June Theatre on The Bay Cape Town
