The Demon Bride
From 8 May 2018
‘With this ring, I thee … DEAD!’
Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre in collaboration with US Woordfees present a new horror-comedy, The Demon Bride, from the Fugard Theatre’s multi-award-winning writer in residence, Louis Viljoen.
The Demon Bride is a gripping and hilarious horror-comedy that sees Viljoen taking an exciting new direction in a production that will make you shiver with delight! It’s wedding season and the wine lands are abuzz with travellers who come to celebrate the nuptials of friends and family. But when the wedding party gets trapped in a haunted cabin in the middle of a dilapidated wine farm, a carefree weekend turns into a nightmare when the spirit of an ancient demon possesses a newlywed and wreaks havoc on her friends.
“With this new play, Louis Viljoen (who wrote and directed) delivers a highly enjoyable, self-reflexive homage to the horror movie genre.” commented Theatre Scene Cape Town. Nominated for three WoordTROfees awards at this year’s University of Stellenbosch (US) Woordfees, The Demon Bride will be unleashed on the Fugard Studio Theatre from 8 May.
