The Darker Side Of Happily Ever After: Blueberry Toast

The Sugar-daddy Theatre Company is back with their new play, ‘Blueberry Toast’ coming soon to Artscape Arena from the 15th to the 25th October 2019.

Ever wonder what evil lurks in the heart of suburbia?

Get ready for this revenge comedy by Yale graduate Mary Laws. ‘Blueberry Toast’ puts the “dys” in family dysfunction!

On the surface, Barb (Marlisa Doubell) and Walt (Gavin Werner) may seem like your typical all-American suburban couple with two precocious children Jack (Daniel Wolsen/Jagger Cooper-Doubell) and Jill (Nikita Latimer/Chloé Gardner) but perhaps the demands to uphold their dream family are taking their toll. This dynamic cast is led by award-winning director Sue Diepeveen.

Experience the darker side of ‘happily ever after’ with this modern-day revenge comedy.

Duration: 1 hour
Dates: 15 October (preview) – 26 October 2019

Thirst by Eugene O’Niell

Sugar-daddy Theatre co. presents, Thirst, by Eugene O’Neill. Transferred from the Cape Town fringe festival by invitation to the the Masque Theatre foyer for one performance only. Join us in celebration of this Nobel Prize Winner & great grandfather of all American playwrights.

It’s somewhat ironic that this one act play (adaptation by Sugar-daddy) is set one hundred years ago, which co-incides with the last time Cape Town experienced such a serious drought!

The play seeks to highlight the importance of water and can be seen as a metaphor for life, sometimes bordering on absurdism. The story goes..
A gentleman, a lady and a sailor are stuck on a raft waiting to be rescued.. what happens next?

Date: Sunday, 11th March 2018
Time: 7:30pm
Running time: 45 mins
Tickets: R80/ concessions R70
Director: Sue Diepeveen
Cast: Pope Jerrod, Marlisa Doubell
Event Photo by: Ant Smythe

Address: MASQUE THEATRE: 37 Main Rd, Muizenberg.
