2012 marks the year of the legendary Athol Fugard’s 80th birthday, the playwright who has brought us amazing, edgy, protest theatre for close on 55 years. Kim Kerfoot directed his Statements After An Arrest Under the Immorality Act, which was described by Mr. Fugard himself as the best production of his work directed by someone other than himself.
Statements then moved on and played to a four-week sell-out run at the Fugard theatre. This remarkable piece of theatre – still relevant, still contentious has now been invited to be part of the international Edinburgh Festival.
This is where you come in… Join 6 on Spin for a gorgeous, decadent evening – with the “eat.drink.talk.read.think” philosophy, for a swanky evening of fine wine, food and entertainment. Joining members of the cast and crew of this incomparable production, the Handspring Puppet Company and a veritable who’s who of Cape Town. Alan Committie will host a charity auction, which will give you the opportunity to purchase beautiful portraits of the production by photographer Jesse Kramer, artwork by Laurie Nathan amost other lovely items – all in aid of getting the cast to the 2012 Edinburgh Festival. A collaborative painting by Andrew Adler and Carolyn Beegan has also been added to the lot to support the cast getting to the U.S. after they perform in Edinburgh.
This über-cool event happens on the 21st June 2012 (this Thursday). Bookings essential, contact 021 461 0666 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please show your support! Secure parking available.
