Three acclaimed plays, one of which a popular South African work, are on the theatre boards in the country. Pulitzer prize-winning American playwright and actor, Sam Shepard’s family drama, “Curse of the Starving Class”, has premièred at Cape Town’s Baxter Theatre with a star-studded cast, including Neil McCarthy, Leila Henriques and Rob van Vuuren. South African author, Mark Behr’s multi award- winning production, “The Smell of Apples” (“Die Reuk van Appels”) shortly returns to the Fugard Theatre in the Mother City by public demand. The play is a coming-of-age story of an eleven year-old boy, the son of a South African Defence Force general. Five-time Tony award- winner, “The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night-time”, shortly premières at the Montecasino Theatre and Studio in Johannesburg with a full South African cast. The show is based on Mark Haddon’s novel, that traces the life-affirming ordeal of an adolescent boy afflicted with Asperger’s Syndrome.
