Among the top productions on the Main Festival are the KZN premiére of Rory Rootenberg and Ian von Memerty’s Cadenza X-Trav (sequel to the award-winning Cadenza); The Well Being with Andrew Buckland, Lionel Newton and Lara Foot Newton, as well as the Take-Away Shakespeare Company’s production of Antony & Cleopatra with Sean Taylor and Jana Cilliers.
