Cape Town Theatre Guide – 1 Sept to 7 Sept

Exclusive Audience with Evita Bezuidenhout

The Mount Nelson Hotel hosts an Exclusive Audience with Evita Bezuidenhout, an evening of humorous entertainment accompanied by a three course menu. Delicate canapés and a glass of Boschendal set the scene for the arrival of one of “South Africa’s most beloved icons”. Evita Bezuidenhout is now the most famous woman in Luthuli House, looking for reconciliation and keeping an eye on the fragile ball of democracy. Bezuidenhout finds the optimism in the local mists of state capture, corruption, apathy and fear.
