Now On Stage

PYTHONESQUE

THE LEGEND CONTINUES!

Playwright ROY SMILES’ brilliant and irreverent trilogy on comedy history ends fittingly with his ingenious comic review, PYTHONESQUE. Having conjured up the spirit of The Goons in "Ying Tong – A Walk with the Goons", and resurrected the ground-breaking satire of Beyond the Fringe and Pete and Dud in "Good Evening", Smiles completes the trilogy with PYTHONESQUE, a play commissioned by Pieter Toerien that was first seen at Theatre on the Bay in 2009.

In a season before the production travels to Los Angeles, you can follow the story of the Oxford and Cambridge graduates John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and the previously-American Terry Gilliam, who in 1969 formed one of the best loved comedy troupes ever – Monty Python’s Flying Circus!

Directed by ALAN SWERDLOW (Constellations, The Mousetrap, Pythonesque, The History Boys, God of Carnage, Boeing-Boeing, Travels With My Aunt, Good Evening, Ying Tong A Walk With the Goons, Tuesdays with Morrie)

With ROBERT FRIDJHON, GRAHAM HOPKINS, THEO LANDEY and RUSSEL SAVADIER as The Pythons

The Swing Cafe Variety Show

The Swing Café Variety Show is proud to present headliner MEL MILLER ... FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!

South African comedy legend MEL MILLER is on stage in Cape Town at Theatre on the Bay for one night only.

Joining MILLER in the line-up on the 29th of March as MC is popular drag act MARY SCARY, who will host the proceedings that will also feature singer/songwriter SIMONE TOMMY, belly dance troupe THE GYPSY BANDIT QUEENS, Scottish poet MISS KIKI, as well as a set of IMPROVISED POETRY GAMES made up from audience suggestions.

THE SWING CAFÉ, a left-of-centre entertainment brand, takes its name from the Swing Era of the 1920s and 30s, when artistic free expression was at an all-time high. The live show is based on the Vaudeville format – a performance made up of a series of separate, unrelated acts grouped together on a common bill. The 29th will also feature poets and acoustic singer/songwriters.

"The Swing Cafe brings its signature blend of stand-up comedy, live music and variety acts to arguably the nicest theatre in Cape Town, Pieter Toerien's Theatre on the Bay, Camps Bay." whatson.co.za

BRILLIANT!
