Social Evenings

Social evenings are a chance for members to meet, socialize and enjoy a short evening’s entertainment in our foyer. These are free events and range from script-reads, to screenings, talks and to soirées. It’s an excellent chance for first time actors, directors and technical crew to experience the stage.

We try to have socials every month when there isn’t a show running on the main stage. If you’re interested in being in a social evening, please get in touch with us

On 12 July the Playhouse is privileged to host veteran anti-apartheid activist, lecturer, author and former Commissioner on Gender Equality, Professor Gertrude Fester performing her play, Lookalike Terrorist,  which was awarded by ArtsCape as one of four best plays submitted in 2019. 

Start 19h00

In Lookalike Terrorist the playwright highlights her experiences at Istanbul airport. En route to Rome, her passport is kept by police standing at the exit of the plane. This puzzles her as the rest of the passengers are allowed to leave after showing their passports. The fact that they were speaking a language which she assumed was Turkish and hence could not understand, further confounds her. They eventually return her passport. While she is approaching the customs, she is re-arrested by a larger group including three women. The play focuses on her thoughts and fears and her need to remain calm. 

The performance will take place in the foyer and no booking is required.
