After months of sold out performances, and an overwhelming response by critics and patrons alike, we are delighted to let our Friends of The Fugard know that you can now plan to see this stunning production as part of your end of year plans!

This brand new, original Eric Abraham and The Fugard Theatre production of the huge-hearted, smash-hit musical has played to sold out houses since opening in June and we are open for business for your end of year pleasure! Kinky Boots is the winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Tony Award for Best Original Score, Tony Award for Best Choreography and Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

This mega-hit is a must see for all musical theatre fans.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, Price & Son, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible, and discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

Kinky Boots is the perfect tonic for your end of year function! For corporate hospitality packages please contact Lamees on Lamees.Albertus@thefugard.com

Athol Fugard’s “Statements” – The Fugard

Athol Fugard’s
Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act
From 17 September 2019

Following an acclaimed premiere at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, a new production of Athol Fugard’s powerful classic comes to The Fugard Studio Theatre from 17 September for a limited season.

Written in 1972, Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act is set in apartheid South Africa, where relationships across the colour bar were a criminal offence. Two lovers – a coloured man and white woman meet secretly in the library where the woman works to make love and share their hopes and fears. A neighbour reports them to the police who secretly photograph them from the informant’s backyard and eventually break in and arrest the couple under the inhuman and universally pilloried Immorality Act. The play is a compelling and deeply moving love story in which the physically and emotionally naked lovers expose not only their bodies but also their deepest longings for personal and emotional freedom.

Presented by Eric Abraham and The Fugard Theatre in partnership with the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, this compelling new co-production opened to rapturous responses at the recent KKNK.

Directed by Greg Karvellas, the production stars Marlo Minnaar (7de Laan, Santa Gamka, Sara Se Geheim, Boland Moorde) and Liezl de Kock (Piet se Optelgoed, Crazy in Love, Pictures of You, African Gothic).

The ‘fun, cheeky’ Happy New Year

Now playing

Eric Abraham and The Fugard Theatre present the South African premiere of Happy New Year, a hilarious, heart-warming rom-com, adapted by South African icon David Kramer from the hit, award-winning play Midsummer (A Play With Songs) by David Greig and Gordon McIntyre.

When two disparate souls – car salesman Dan and high-flying divorce lawyer Lee-André – come together, a wild weekend of alcohol-infused adventure and abandon ensues. Between bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust ups and self-loathing hangovers, they discover they are not so different after all, and that maybe there are second chances at life – and love.

Directed by internationally acclaimed director and former Artistic Director of The Tricycle Theatre in London, Nicolas Kent, the cast stars popular actors Bianca Flanders (Krotoa – Eva Van De Kaap, The Demon Bride, Aunty Merle the Musical, Blood Brothers, Orpheus in Africa, Kristalvlakte) as Lee-André, and Dean Balie (Orpheus in Africa, Blood Brothers, Kat and the Kings, Hamlet, Babbelagtig, Sweet Bird of Youth), as Dan.

Please note: Happy New Year is presented in English with adult themes and has a recommended age advisory of 14 years with parental guidance (SL).
