MORE OF CAVEMAN (article first published : 2000-07-30)

Talk about a success story. Pieter Toerien’s production of Rob Becker's Defending the Caveman completely sold out at the Playhouse Opera last week before the opening night of its run!. In response to the overwhelming demand for tickets, three performances have been scheduled for September 5, 6 and 7 at 20h00.

Directed by doyen of South African comedy theatre Rex Garner, Tim Plewman puts in a fine performance in this affectionate comedy in two acts about men and women. Tim plays the hero who, anxious to defend the beleaguered male, comes up with a theory that male-female relations are thwarted by their refusal to acknowledge the fact that the female “gatherer” is almost an entirely different species to the male “hunter”!

The show has played to packed houses around the world including South Africa, and still continues to draw in crowds. To date Tim has played over 600 performances since September 1997. From Durban Defending the Caveman moves back to Johannesburg for a season that is already sold out, then on to Pretoria followed by Cape Town and another sold out season.

Those wanting to see the show in September at the Playhouse are advised to book early to avoid disappointment! All booking is through Computicket or for credit cards on (031) 304-2753 or Dial-A-Seat on (031) 369-9444.
