There’s a new show at Kalk Bay Theatre which opened last night and will be running until 16 June 2018. I’m sad to be missing it as I’m travelling at the moment and won’t be back in Cape Town until end July, but just looking at the team involved with this production, along with the fact that I’ve never seen a show that I didn’t absolutely love at Kalk Bay Theatre, I know this is going to be a must see.
Here’s the synopsis:
Land is the hot topic in the country. It’s contentious, fuels lots of anger and angst, filling numerous talk shows and column space with perspectives as diverse as South Africa’s population. What better subject then for the third (and final) collaboration between Daniel Richards, Rob van Vuuren and Mike van Graan (following their highly successful Pay back the Curry and State Fracture revues)? Daniel Richards again owns the stage in this multi-sketch piece that combines provocative humour with impressive and versatile performing skills.
I saw both Pay Back the Curry & State Fracture and they were both excellent. Daniel Richards really is a brilliant performer and the writing & directing always manages to deliver some serious topics with a proudly South African sense of humour.
The production team (as you’ll see below) are also some of the most well known people on the SA scene who all bring tons of experience and previous hits:
Produced by: MVG Productions, Alan Committie and Daniel Richards
Written by: Mike van Graan
Directed by: Rob van Vuuren
Land Acts comes with a 13+ age restriction, so just keep that in mind if you’re planning to make this a family outing. Tickets cost R150 pp and can be purchased online over here.
Need some extra motivation? The theatre is warm & cosy, making it the perfect winter evening outing. (AND you can take your drinks into the theatre #lovethat) You can also make an evening of it by having dinner before (because the show only starts at 8:30pm), either at the Kalk Bay Theatre restaurant or one of the other great little eateries in Kalk Bay.
Don’t think about it, just do it. 😉
