The 2015 DUT Children’s Theatre Festival profiles award-winning playwright Neil Coppen and will feature four plays all penned by him, to be staged at the Courtyard Theatre at DUT on 18 September and again from 21 – 23 September 2015.

The Baxter Theatre Centre will showcase three productions from 24 September to 3 October at this year’s Cape Town Fringe. All three productions were performed to great success at the Baxter’s Zabalaza Theatre Festival which was held in March.

This year’s programme features more women in an effort to amplify female voices in the theatrical, performing and visual arts. This year’s National Arts Festival – which runs from 2 to 12 July – not only features a number of strong and visible women in most genres, but also numerous productions and exhibitions that interrogate and question fixed thinking in relation to gender more broadly.

To mark the 20th anniversary of legendary South African theatre-maker Barney Simon’s passing, the Baxter Theatre Centre is restaging his riveting docudrama ‘Born in the RSA’ in Grahamstown this year.

    It is confession time, and it’s not funny. I am addicted to Facebum. I can’t help myself. I detest it and cannot live without it. I make up the worst excuses about why I need it; networking you know, publicity for my work, the best way to support my causes, to express my point of […]
  • Acting
    These are just a few thoughts, because I am deeply in love with my current cast, who are busy performing an industrial theatre roadshow , and I am reminded how extraordinary actors can and should be, when they are the real deal. And, I consider myself an actor of sorts, an actor amongst other things, […]
  • Falling in love on a Thursday
    Today was an unusual day to fall in love. Everybody else in the world seemed busy complaining, or criticising (at least that’s what it looked like on Facebum and Twitterer), and there was a lot of mourning going on too; Jonah Lomu replaced Paris, but was quickly replaced by Nigeria (the world and its people […]
  • Hello Megan’s Head
    It really has been a while since I wrote a blog post. In my defence, after a particularly sluggish year, this last few weeks has been intensely busy. I have been working and travelling (and also procrastinating on some important personal work) and jolling around Jozi, and being a director of plays (one of my […]
