from the new production of the Athol Fugard classic.

A brand new adaptation on Athol Fugard's classic play PEOPLE ARE LIVING THERE will play the Galloway Theatre, fresh off of runs at the National Arts Festival and the Cape Town Fringe.

When the lonely and isolated Milly (Imke du Toit), a woman on the brink of turning 50, decides to rope in Don, a student (Kiroshan Naidoo); Shorty, a dim-witted postman (Almar Muller), and Sissy, Shorty's newlywed wife (Danielle Botha), into dealing with a secret with which she cannot come to terms, a celebration full of regret, bitterness and absurdity erupts. Like a slowly decaying house held together by thin threads of memory, Milly wrestles with an internal struggle concerning the 'loss of time'.

Directors Blythe Linger and Kathleen Stephens weave a freshly conceived conceptual twist into Fugard's, a subtext that allows tthis production to explore the struggles of a 50 year old woman and the struggle of the subconscious within a realistic context. PEOPLE ARE LIVING THERE aims to uncover absurdity, delusion, hope, reality, deterioration, power struggles and comedy.
