Suddenly The Storm

The Cape Town premiere of Paul Slabolepszy’s new production, Suddenly The Storm, nominated for six Naledi Theatre awards. On the outer reaches of the Far East Rand, at the home of an ageing ex-cop Dwayne (Slabolepszy) and his much younger wife Shanell (Weir-Smith), a storm is brooding. What starts out as a smouldering dark comedy, suddenly turns into a roller-coaster ride of startling revelations, of rage and recrimination, of intrigue and suspense before the storm finally breaks.

Until 8 July, 7:30PM
