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 they wait for darkness to fall, the paranoia sets in and 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.

From the creators of the award-winning play “Champ”, comes a disturbing story about the violent measures some people will go to for financial gain. Shane and Yuri, two ambitious property developers, are on the verge of sealing a very important property deal, but it grounds to a halt when an important investor threatens to pull out. Convincing themselves that their survival is at stake, Shane and Yuri make a fateful decision to abandon their humanity and embrace the evil in their hearts.

The script, by Fleur du Cap winning writer Louis Viljoen, is fast-paced, profane and unsettling and is complimented by the direction of acclaimed theatremaker, Greg Karvellas (Champ, Frank-n-Stein, The Abusers). Added to that is a power-house team of actors: Nichlas Pauling (Waiting for the Barbarians) and Mark Elderkin (Betesda) .
