Cape Town can’t seem to get enough of the global cult hit that is ‘The Epicene Butcher and Other Stories for Consenting Adults’. The production will return to the Alexander Bar for a week to satiate the demands of those who missed its last run.
‘The Epicene Butcher…’ is the most highly rated show ever hosted at the Alexander Bar (by audience members) and it returns for a short run before the team disappear off to another exotic location. See what all the fuss is about from Monday to Saturday, January 12 to 17.
Audiences can look forward to the deployment of a 12th Century Japanese Buddhist storytelling tradition known as kamishibai to tell seven startling pop stories. The show is a mash-up of manga, sex, gothic horror and mainstream popular culture using hand-drawn illustrations and luscious narration.
‘The Epicene Butcher’ has to date received the following honours:
• A Silver Ovation Award, NAF Grahamstown 2012
• Critics’ Choice & Audience Favourite, Fringe Amsterdam 2012
• Best New Script & Audience Favourite, Musho! Theatre Festival
Jemma Kahn was selected as one of M&G’s Top 200 Young South Africans in 2013 and as one of AfriPOP’s Top 5 Women to Watch in SA Theatre.
