Athol Fugard is in town! Actor, writer, director and South African legend, known for his plays such as Boesman and Lena (1969); Master Harold…and the Boys (1982) and the author of Tsotsi (1980). We are privileged to have him on home soil while he directs his newest play, The Bird Watchers, where else but at The Fugard Theatre.
I spent some time in rehearsal with the cast & crew last week. It is certainly one of the most beautiful rehearsal rooms in the world, and houses the original Congregational Church windows which cast such gorgeous light.
The Bird Watchers will run at The Fugard Theatre from 10 May – 4 June 2011.
