Following its sold-out run last year, The Fall returns to the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio during youth month from Thursday June 8 to Saturday June 24, at 7pm nightly, with matinee performances on Saturdays at 2.30pm.
The Fall is a collaborative piece of workshop theatre based on the experiences of seven UCT graduates during the #RhodesMustFall and subsequent student movements. It is facilitated by Clare Stopford, and curated by Ameera Conrad and Thando Mangcu, two members of the collective.
The cast also includes Oarabile Ditsele, Tankiso Mamabolo, Sizwesandile Mnisi, Sihle Mnqwazana and Cleo Raatus.
The Fall aims to bridge the generational gap between the perspective, attitudes and motivations of the current generation and that of the older generation on contemporary issues such as colonisation, sexuality and racial discrimination.
The play also reviews the gains made and the developments that have occurred as a result of the student rallies.
There is an age restriction of 16 years. Tickets cost R130 from Monday to Thursday and R150 Friday to Saturday. There is a student special of R100 on presentation of a valid student identity card and R49 for UCT students available only at the Baxter box office.
There is also an early bird special of R60, available for bookings made by Wednesday May 31. Booking through Computicket or for corporate, block or school bookings, charities and fundraisers, contact Sharon Ward on 021 680 3962 or Sharon.firstname.lastname@example.org
