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.
Three 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.
