THE CAVEMAN COMETH! (article first published : 2003-09-26)

Defending the Caveman, one of the most successful productions in the history of South African theatre, will return to Durban at the end of September.

“We thought his 2002 season was the last one – but we were wrong!,” say the organisers. “Tickets sold out within days and the whole season was pretty much sold out before the opening night – so Tim Plewman has agreed to come back for one last time with his phenomenal show.”

Once again Defending the Caveman will entertain audiences who just can’t seem to get enough of this smash-hit comedy of the sexes. After its Durban run the play will move to the Montecasino in Johannesburg.

Playwright Rob Becker’s humorous exploration of the differences between men and women has been a nationwide hit for the last six years. The play is produced by Pieter Toerien and stars the irresistibly funny Tim Plewman as the hero of the piece.

The show has been loved and enjoyed by critics and audiences alike. It tackles the eternal, baffling and seemingly insurmountable differences between men and woman with humorous insight and without passing hostile judgement. It has a positive outlook and offers unusual yet delightfully apt insights into one of the most discussed aspects of human nature.

Rob Becker says of his play: "I think part of the success of the show is due to a whole generation catching onto the idea that we can work for equality between the sexes AND we can bring harmony to our relationships be understanding our differences.”

Defending the Caveman runs in The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from September 30 to October 12. Tickets will no doubt be much in demand – so early booking is advised! Book at Computicket or on 011 340 8000 or 083 915 8000.
