In the competitive world of property development, two men go to extreme lengths to secure a lucrative real estate deal and to dig themselves out of a financial hole. As darkness begins to fall and paranoia sets in, they find their ideals challenged, their morality shaken and their blood-lust slowly increasing. The Frontiersmen is a dark tale about land, blood and good old South African greed.
The script, by award-winning writer Louis Viljoen, is fast-paced, profane and unsettling and is complemented by the direction of acclaimed theatre maker, Greg Karvellas. Added to that is a powerhouse team of actors: Nicholas Pauling and Mark Elderkin. The Frontiersmen will unnerve, agitate and entertain.
