Presented by Artscape and the Fugard Theatre, and directed by Greg Karvellas, Louis Viljoen’s wicked new dark-comedy Champ is now playing at the Fugard Studio after an initial successful season at Artscape in 2012.

champ-posterThree actors, scraping the bottom of the barrel while working as children’s entertainers in a mall, find themselves struggling to hold on to their jobs and what little dignity they have left when they encounter a vicious child hell-bent on making their day worse than it already is. Through a combination of exhaustion, wounded pride, middle-class disaffection and a little too much
alcohol early in the day, they enter into a battle with the mischievous and dastardly little boy and set in motion a series of events that will not necessarily change their lives, but perhaps make the day a little more interesting.

Due to explicit and graphic language Champ carries a strict no under 18 age restriction.
