About

*From 13-18 February the play will be performed in English. The following week from 20 - 24 February the play will be performed in Afrikaans.

THE GOOD DAD (13 - 18 Feb)

*The matinee on Saturday 17 February incorporates a South African sign language interpreter and is geared towards deaf audience members.

A good dad. A happy family. A dark secret.
A young woman is sitting in a prison cell. A serious crime has been committed. But what precisely? And why? Everyone thought they were a lovely family.

But every family has something to hide and drawn curtains hide dark secrets.
Under the direction of Paul du Toit (Fleur du Cap winner for Best Director 2022), Erika Breytenbach-Marais (Fleur du Cap nomination for Best Actress 2022) delivers a solo performance which takes the audience on a magical theatre journey with the use of a single prop, staggering design, and an almost unbelievable story.
Breytenbach-Marais received her second Fleur du Cap nomination for Die Goeie Pa in 2023.

DIE GOEIE PA (20 - 24 Feb)
 
‘n Goeie Pa. ‘n Lieflike gesin. ‘n Donker geheim.
‘n Jong vrou sit in 'n tronk sel. ‘n Ernstige misdaad is gepleeg. Maar presies wat? En hoekom? Al die mense het dan gedink hulle was ‘n lieflike gesin. Wat skuil alles agter toegetrekte gordyne?
Onder die regie van Paul du Toit (Fleur du Cap wenner vir Beste Regisseur 2022), lewer Erika Breytenbach-Marais (Fleur du Cap benoeming vir Beste Aktrise 2022) 'n solo vertoning wat die gehoor neem op 'n reis van teater betowering met gebruik van 'n enkele rekwisiet, treffende ontwerp en 'n byna ongelooflike storie.
Breytenbach-Marais ontvang haar tweede Fleur du Cap benoeming vir Die Goeie Pa in 2023.
