Significant Other – Final Week – The Fugard

Significant Other
From the writer of Bad Jews
Final week – must close 7 July

If you enjoyed the hilarious Bad Jews you will love Joshua Harmon’s follow up Broadway hit play Significant Other.

Jordan Berman is desperately looking for Mr Right… but he is getting it all wrong. From the writer of the West End smash hit comedy Bad Jews, which enjoyed sold out runs in Johannesburg and Cape Town, comes a Fugard Theatre production of Joshua Harmon’s Broadway success Significant Other.

Significant Other follows Jordan and his three closest friends as they navigate love, friendship and New York in their twenty-something years. Jordan is single, and finding Mr. Right is much easier said than done. While surrounding himself with his close group of girlfriends, it comes to pass that the only thing harder than looking for love is supporting the loved ones around him as they pair off and embark on their journey of marriage.

The New York Times hailed Significant Other as one of its Top Ten Productions of 2015, with critic Charles Isherwood commenting ‘an absolutely wonderful new play. Entirely delightful, richly funny and heart-stirring’.

Louis Viljoen’s
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.

Please note: The Demon Bride has an age restriction of 18 (Adult content, Language, Sex).
