Cabaret & Satire • Running Time: 65 mins
Written and Performed by Godfrey Johnson and Nicholas McDiarmid

 Godfrey Johnson, joined by Nicholas McDiarmid, returns ‘Unzipped’* refreshed, renewed and a little reprised. First performed in 2016, Beverley Brommert (Cape Times Review) found  “Unzipping Godfrey Johnson proves a stimulating experience…” and discovered “the layered and complex personality of this artist: sentimental, profound, impish…bright with some dark places.” 

‘Cabaret Unzipped’ weaves the songs of Bowie, Brel, Amos, Weill and originals, with the satirical characters Juniper Jade (now joined by Sally Sky) and Nugent Stein joined by young Meubeltjie) into a witty, humane reflection of life today, powered by the personal, rather than the tribal; the meaningful rather than viral.

‘Cabaret Unzipped - Songs & Satire’ furthers the inventive weaving of song, caricature and satire into a narrative fabric of 2016s ‘Unzipped’ which the Cape Times observed: “Johnson switches seamlessly from tender pianissimo to full-throated fortissimo…Topical references are artfully included into familiar lyrics, taking sideswipes at Donald Trump and the Gupta family; these are subdued and subtle, making their impact all the greater for understatement.”

Two years later, and Trump has since won the US Presidency and…Zuma…the Guptas…Change has accelerated, and Johnson feels the need to Unzip again, only differently.

Come and find out how life feels through the lens of one of South Africa’s most established performers and musicians, when Godfrey Johnson (joined by Nicholas McDiarmid) presents ‘Cabaret Unzipped - Songs & Satire’  at the Alexander Bar from the 18th to the 21st of July, 19h00 hours.

Mish Mash Media Productions presents another mini production called "Not Just Musicals".

Ellen has always loved living the life of a performer and can't see herself doing anything else. Well she can, however she does not want to. But when a series of events come into play and she is forced to face the unvarnished truth, everything changes. Now she needs to make the hardest decision she has ever made in her life. Conflicted and almost at her wits end, she ends up hurting everything she holds dear.

Performance • Running Time: 60 mins
Directed by Andrew Roux | Written by Aimée Mica Ntuli & Lidija Marelic | Produced by Aimeé Mica Ntuli | Performed by Alistair Moulton Black, Rory Acton Burnell, Lamar Bonhomme and Aimeé Mica Ntuli
Warning: 16LSNV

1992 Bosnia, a bloody civil war begins. Cheers to Sarajevo tells the story of two lovers. A Bosnian Muslim and a Bosnian Serb. A love story. In the days of Yugoslavia their differing ethnicities was accepted as a norm in the cosmopolitan city of Sarajevo. Told through the lens of an ambitious South African conflict journalist who infiltrates their lives we follow the slow but steady decline of a lifelong friendship. Theirs is a story known to many Yugoslavs who were separated from one another and who turned on each other during a senseless war. It is a story known to people all over the world who are torn apart because of race, religion and the mass media that use war as their fodder.

Often by watching and telling stories of other people, you get to learn about yourself. How far was South Africa from a civil bloody war in the 90’s. How different is xenophobia from racism, nationalism, ethnocentricity. How easy would it be to turn on our brothers and sisters right now, 2018 in South Africa. In a world in which human suffering is rife, every opportunity to be reminded of what we share, who we are and our ability to hope should be grasped. War, hate & violence are themes that are perpetuated on the international news daily.

The power of theatre is to speak beyond the limitations of media, screens & prints. Story can epitomise the importance of compassion, forgiveness & love in a world that is submerged in fear, pain and discrimination. Stories can touch the hearts of the enemy and remind them that the man we kill is our brother, the women we rape is our mother and the children we maim, they are the future of our humanity.Cheers to Sarajevo is performed in the memory of Anné Mariè du Preez Bezdrob. A former United Nations political and information officer, award-winning political journalist and radio and television anchor.During the war in Bosnia she spent two years, from 1993 to 1995, in the capital Sarajevo as a member of the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR).

These performances are in an effort to raise money which will be given to a charity for the Rohingya refugee children. Further more, Theatre’s power is in the audiences knowledge that when the lights go down, for the how ever many hours, every person in that darkened room is going to share an experience that is entirely unique. No show will ever be exactly the same. This makes it truthful. The knowledge allows both the performers and the audience to create a bond founded on the fact that this experience is almost a secret that no one outside this room will ever be privy to. This intimacy, when harnessed can create a truly lasting emotional impression. it provides the opportunity to tap into our innate ability to empathise and sympathise with one another. This way, tales from what may seem to be a foreign land can suddenly feel like they are your own, and remind us of the simple fact that we all share the human condition.

Cheers to Sarajevo just returned from performing in Ottawa, Canada, opening up an international conference organized by the Central and Eastern European Studies Research Group in collaboration with the Research Group on Migration. University of Ottawa: 21st Century Reflections on Sexual Violence in Wars and its Transgenerational and Transnational Impact.

Marriage! Marriage? Marriage. Fool, an original play uncovers the juicy, secrets of a marriage and the catastrophic turn of events that happen when things go a little pear shaped. A chauvinistic, custard of a husband and a devilish, sour housewife find themselves swimming around in a boiling pot of unwanted and unfortunate realities, bubbling under the surface until their shameful truths unfold. He obviously doesn’t like her cooking, but this wicked woman has much bigger fish to fry and let’s just say that revenge sure is sweet…beastly, dangerous and delicious!

Set in the 1960’s, this dark comedy demonstrates a series of powerful physicality and story-telling, unveiling some pretty wrongful truths. The play exposes a common problem of adultery in marriages today and one resentful and ingenious yet sinful solution. With a cast of two women, Fool leads you through a witty, outspoken, distorted, yet thrilling and liberating story of the revenge a woman takes on her husband.

Jo, a recent divorcée, arrives for her first session with Carl Zimmerman, a Cape Town psychologist. Carl's consulting room is on the corner of Loop and Strand and apart from the expected couch contains a Steinway baby-grand. (Carl is also a wannabe songwriter and often surprises his clients by using music therapy to work through their divorce issues.) In one 70mn musical rollercoaster-ride they laugh, cry, share and lay bare their broken hearts through song and chat  and by the end of the session we could almost believe that these two total strangers are ready to fall in love again.

Solo Performance (comedy/drama) • Running Time: 65 mins
Directed by Karla Knudsen | Written and Performed by Dennis Elkins| Lighting Design by Elaine Wong | Sound Design by Robert Hornbostel | Stage Management by Monique Cuyler

Whether we like it not, we are consumed by our connections to cardboard boxes. As a child, with the delight of life around every corner, the box is the most amazing gift—not the contents, just the box. As a parent, when the mind and body separate more with each passing day, our possessions (and sometimes our bodies) are stored in boxes for future generations to curse and explore. Are we to be summed up solely by the contents of a cardboard box—a somewhat nihilistic attitude in corrugated paper? box. unabashedly demands ransoming our lives from the boxes tucked away under the bed, back of the closet, down in the basement, up in the attic and gives voice to the process, often painful, of packing and unpacking our lives.

Actor/director Dennis Elkins argues creatively for bringing order to the chaos of saving “junk” in our cardboard boxes. 

box. is an autobiographical journey of cleaning house after loved ones die and when those of us who are left must choose what to keep and what to shred. The easy solution is to dump the stuff in a box and deal with it later—but, when “later” comes, we still agonize with the left-overs in a comical way. This 70 minute one-man play, performed without intermission, demands ransoming our lives from the boxes tucked away under the bed, back of the closet, down in the basement and up in the attic. Giving voice to the sometimes prickly, yet pleasurable, process of packing and unpacking our prized possessions. 

Though a native of Elkhart, Kansas, Dennis spent several years in the academic theatre arena all over the United States, mostly in the Southeast and Rocky Mountain areas. Home base is currently the South Harlem area of NYC which enriches his time between acting, directing, teaching and writing opportunities. Favorite roles include Shylock, Polonius, Sir Toby Belch, Rothko, Picasso, Joe Keller and Edna Turnblad. Elkins is a certified Associate Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework and a member of Actors’ Equity Association.

50 Shades of Fairytales: the non-political(ly correct) Song Revue (No Zuma, no Trump, no kids….unless you want 'em to grow up to be gun-wielding, lace-wearing feminists. The girls too!”)

We start learning about fairytales and happily-ever-after before we can even walk. Then we grow up. Some of us wonder what ever happened to the fairytales and some of us, well... never believed in them in the first place. This whimsical and quirky song revue depicts the journey of two women (both played by Titilayo Adedokun) who evolve through their personal experiences of love, its challenges and its consequences. A collection of witty and thought-provoking songs that will leave you laughing, crying and oh-so identifying with the characters.

Titilayo Rachel Adedokun was born in Nashville, Tennessee, USA to parents of Nigerian origin. A former Miss Ohio and 2nd Runner-up to Miss America, her talent and experience span different musical genres from classical, musicals and spirituals to jazz, blues and Yoruba music. She is known for her versatility, her range and an unparalleled ability to captivate an audience.

A graduate of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in Ohio, USA - studying opera by day and singing in a dinner theater by night - she has sung in opera houses and with orchestras all over the world and also performed in Musical Galas with the late Adolph Greene, Betty Comden and Lauren Bacall.

She was chosen by director Franco Zeffirelli to sing the title role in his production of “Aida” at Teatro Verdi in Busseto, Italy, on the centennial celebration of Verdi’s death. 

She has toured Europe in various productions including as Musetta in “La Boheme”, Kate in “Kiss Me Kate”, soloist in “Night Fever: Die Gala Der Film Musicals” and Billie Holiday in the Jazz Musical "Ella & Billie". She is the featured vocalist of “The Wine & Roses Swing Orchestra” in Munich.She moved from Munich to Cape Town four years ago with her family and is very thrilled to call this beautiful city "home".

Baroque music cross over • Running Time: 55 mins
Presented by the 2018 Cape Town Baroque Festival | Music composed and arranged by Jan-Hendrik Harley | Performed by 'Ensemble Je Ne Comprends Pas' | Jan-Hendrik Harley on violin, guitar and direction | Joshua Frank on recorder and guitar | Mariechen Meyer on double bass | John Pringle on percussion

The 2018 Cape Town Baroque Festival presents ‘David Bowie Reworked’, featuring works from David Bowie’s heyday, conceptually reimagined as baroque compositions. 

The music is arranged by Stellenbosch based composer Jan-Hendrik Harley and performed by Ensemble Je Ne Comprends Pas on original baroque instruments.

Having been dubbed the “Chameleon of Rock” and a master of reinvention, it felt that the only natural approach to an evening of eclectic arrangements in honour of the iconic musician and entertainer David Bowie would be a complete reinvention of his music itself. This is exactly what can be expected from Stellenbosch based composer Jan-Hendrik Harley and Ensemble Je Ne Comprends Pas’s contribution to the 2018 Cape Town Baroque Festival. 

‘David Bowie Reworked’ features works from the musician’s heyday, conceptually reimagined as baroque compositions – a nod to his ability to revamp his music and image so many times over a long and illustrious career. 

The concert will be presented by a quartet of musicians from the ensembles’ ranks: joining Jan-Hendrik Harley (violin, guitar and direction) on stage will be Joshua Frank (recorder and guitar), Mariechen Meyer (double bass) and John Pringle (percussion). The concert will be performed on period instruments, and the Bowie pieces will be alternated with anonymous baroque works that also reflect the recurring themes of angst, fear and alienation in his music, in order to complete the illusion.


Presented by the 2018 Cape Town Baroque Festival. Music composed and arranged by Jan-Hendrik Harley. Performed by 'Ensemble Je Ne Comprends Pas'. Jan-Hendrik Harley (violin, guitar and direction), Joshua Frank (recorder and guitar), Mariechen Meyer (double bass) and John Pringle (percussion).

Drama • Running Time: 70 mins
Directed by Chris Weare | Written by Win Wells | Performed by Lynita Crofford and Shirley Johnston | Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French .SAMUEL FRENCH LTD
This evocative and witty play explores the extraordinary relationship between lifelong partners Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas who rejected the conservative values of middle class America in the early nineteen hundreds and found refuge in the bohemian decadence of Paris… and in each other.   

Stein drew artistic genius to her salon like a magnet, numbering among her close friends Hemingway, Picasso, Matisse, Cezanne, Klee and Scott Fitzgerald among other artists, writers and poets. They regularly gathered at what became known as the ‘Mecca for the modern-minded’ where they inspired each other to create art, drank often, fought often, fell in and out of love… and occasionally indulged in Alice’s hash brownies.  The mystique of the ‘lost generation’ in Paris, a term coined by Stein, serves as a colourful backdrop to a tender and unconventional love story which Wells has woven into an absorbing theatre piece.   

Press & Reviews

  • Tue 19th Jun 2018 Blogs

    "The two doyens of the South African Stage were magnificent and flawless. A triumph, really."

    "Do go see it. It’s a performance masterclass."

Comedy • Running Time: 65 mins
Written by Brent Meersman | Directed by Wynne Bredenkamp | Performed by Sophie Kirsch and Sizo Mahlangu

She suspects he’s up to mischief. He think she’s just being selfish. Out in the wilds with a tent without poles and surrounded by laughing hyenas, they have to come to an understanding if they are to survive. Well, that is what you’d think. But she has other ideas and he may have other agendas. Is this a camping trip from hell, or is hell in other people?

A new comedy by Brent Meersman, co-editor of GroundUp news, is directed by Wynne Bredenkamp, director of the "multi-layered and mesmerizing" At The Edge of The Light. 

Sophie Kirsch (Miriam Makeba: Mama Africa The Musical) stars in this comedy alongside Sizo Mahlangu (Shakespeare in Love and Othello).

"Campers do not give merely to get, but relate to each other in a spirit of equality and community,” wrote philosopher GA Cohen. But what if they didn’t? Find out in this most unusual comedy: Why not socialism
