This end-of-the-year offering is set to be a highlight of Johannesburg’s festive season. Don’t miss a stellar cast in this laugh-a-minute comedy!

Written by The Market Theatre’s Artistic Director, Greg Homann, and directed by the award-winning Charmaine Weir-Smith, this hilarious new South African play is set on an unnamed golf-estate somewhere on the north-west edge of Johannesburg. It promises to be the heart-warming holiday comedy you need at the end of this year.

Its story about family, love, misunderstandings, and the topsy-turvy nature of following cultural practices will lift spirits and leave you smiling.

Interval: 15min
Arnold Hartmann is 45 and three quarters. He has big plans to propose to Natalie Cloete before hosting the perfect ‘traditional’ Christmas lunch to unify his and her family. But a nightmare has caused him to oversleep, and before he can build up the courage to pop the question, the two families have started to arrive …

This premier is co-produced by How Now Brown Cow Productions in partnership with The Market Theatre.

The sensational cast features some of South Africa’s best loved talent and stars, Antony Coleman (Houseboy, Borderline) and Kim Cloete (Joanie Galant – Hulle) return to The Market as the leading couple at the centre of the comedy. They are joined by James Borthwick (Amadeus, Uncle Vanya), Judy Ditchfield, (6 Dance Lessons in 6 Weeks, Menopause The Musical), Louise Saint-Claire (My Name is Asher Lev, Pterodactyls), Ilse Klink (The Amen Corner, Mamma Mia), Roberto Pombo (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Epicene Butcher), Zolani Shangase (West Side Story, The Color Purple), and Trevor Lynch (In the Blood, Hunters Gatherers).
