Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Bobby Heaney Directs The TONY AWARD-WINNING BEST PLAY VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is Broadway's Tony® Award-winning Best Play of 2013. Pieter Toerien presents the South African Premiere of this raucous and surprisingly poignant smash hit by Tony winner Christopher Durang, which will be Directed By Bobby Heaney. Vanya and his sister Sonia live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up. But their sister Masha escaped many years ago and became a famous movie star! When Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike, their prophesizing housekeeper Cassandra correctly predicts an unforgettable weekend of rivalry, regret and generally hilarious racket. By the end of their impromptu family reunion, this lovable bunch won't ever be the same!

Robert Fridjhon goes WILD Directed by Alan Committie "SO FUNNY, IT HURTS!!" Multi-award breaking Robert returns to the stand-up comedy fold after a long sabbatical in theatre working with herds of actors. WILD is a brand-new solo show based on his experiences in wildlife during which he was bitten, kicked and scratched (mostly by people), and then educated by lions. Robert's stand-up career has taken him through the ranks of Joe Parker’s Comedy Express and John Vlismas’ Comedy Underground where his goonish absurdism garnered a cult-like following. He has also enjoyed great success in some of London’s toughest comedy clubs where his unique brand of humour won him acclaim as well as an invitation to perform on the Main Stage at the Smirnoff International Comedy Festival. WILD is everything you've always wanted to know about the animal world ... why you should never surprise a leopard, how we know polar bears are all left-handed, why giraffes are never in horror films and what would happen if a cat won the next elections.
