Tony and Olivier award-winning theatre for a cultured evening out in Cape Town

October 17, 2016

Florian Zeller is arguably one of the most exciting new playwrights of our time (The Guardian), and his work has won him several major accolades, including the coveted  Prix Interallié in 2004.

His piece “The Father” has been translated into English by Christopher Hampton and will be enacted by South Africa’s own national treasure, Marius Weyers. He is supported by the exceptional cast of Anthea Thompson (My Briljante Egskeiding, Shirley Valentine, Madam and Eve), Emily Child (The Pervert Laura; The Emissary, A Certain Lady), Brent Palmer (A Steady Rain, The Kingmakers, Bench), Nicholas Pauling (Clybourne Park, A Steady Rain, Epstein) and Amy Louise Wilson  (The Book of Negroes, Scrape and The Year of the Bicycle). Directing the show is Greg Karvellas (Clybourne Park; Bad Jews; CHAMP) with set design by Rocco Pool. For a stunning view into the vibrancy that is the South African theatre scene, book now.
