Showing in May, June and July at Theatre On The Bay

Send to Kindle

There are three very different productions on during the months of May, June and July at the popular Theatre On The Bay in Camps Bay, Cape Town.  As always there are ticket price reductions for some of the shows on a Thursday so you have no excuse not to treat yourself to some cultural fun!  See below for further information on what is coming up at Theatre on the Bay from May until July …

Mass Appeal

Mass Appeal

Mass Appeal
Mass Appeal is an award winning play by Bill C Davis.  Starring Graham Hopkins and Clyde Berning its on from May 4th – 21st. Mass Appeal is the story of a clash of ideology and personality between an older entrenched priest, Father Farley, who accommodates to survive, and a scorching young seminarian, Mark Dolson, who attacks to force salvation. Each in his own way uses his relationship to the congregation to heal personal scars.

Playwright Bill C. Davis draws portraits of these two: the glad-hand, loud and rambunctious pastor and the passionately radical young seminarian, and brings them together to learn about each other and, in turn, themselves.

Fr. Farley is instructed to turn his charge into a quieter and more obedient replica of himself. As natural opponents in a teacher/pupil situation, they enter a moral and psychological struggle. They lock horns. They fight and squabble, tease and enrage each other in a battle of wits and principles that is both moving and at times wildly funny.

Shows are on Wednesdays to Saturdays at 8pm with two shows on Saturday 21 May at 5pm & 8pm.  Thursday shows are R80 – R120 and R100 – R150 on Wednesday, Friday and Sundays.

Tuesdays with Morrie

Tuesdays with Morrie

Tuesdays with Morrie
On from May 25th to June 11th is Tuesdays with Morrie.  The production is based on the international best seller by Mitch Albom and tells the story of an old man, a young man and life’s great lesson.

Tuesdays With Morrie is an autobiographical story of Mitch Albom (an accomplished journalist) and his relationship with his former college professor, Morrie Schwartz. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie’s appearance on a television news programme and learns that his old professor from Brandeis University is battling with Lou Gehrig’s disease.  Mitch is reunited with Morrie. What starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage – and a last class in the meaning of life! The show stars Graham Hopkins and Asher Stoltz

Performances are on Wednesdays to Saturdays at 8pm with Saturday June 11th having two curtain raises at 5pm & 8pm.  Tickets are R80 to R120 on a Thursday and from R100 to R150 on other days.

Love, Loss and What I Wore

Love, Loss and What I Wore

Love, Loss and What I Wore
The third production is Love, Loss and What I Wore.  On from June 15th to July 9th. This is an intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron and is based on the book by Ilene Beckerman which examines who a woman’s wardrobe serves as the way she remembers her life.  Like the popular book of the same name, the show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to.

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!
