DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN (article first published : 1999-07-17)

Rob Becker's Defending the Caveman, one of South Africa's most successful box-office hits, opens in the Playhouse Drama on August 10. Brought to Durban by Pieter Toerien, it stars the well-known and popular actor Tim Plewman and is directed by the inimitable doyen of South African stage and screen Rex Garner, whose last comedy to play in Durban was the highly successful Funny Money.

The play is described as an 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, and still continues to draw in crowds. So how does Becker explain its success? “I think the show gives people a way to understand themselves and their partners while they're laughing and I think some healing takes place when a couple sits in a darkened theatre, laughing with hundreds of other couples, realising they are not alone."
