DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN PRESENTATION (article first published : 2007-12-10)

Having been seen by more than 600,000 South Africans since 1997, the hit one-man play Defending The Caveman has finally made the jump from stage to page – Tim Plewman will be signing copies of his newly-launched book and will be on hand to chat to fans at Adams Musgrave on December 11.

Having starred as the caveman in the play 1,544 times, Tim Plewman has released Defending The Caveman as a book. The publication was launched officially in KZN on November 26 at The Mercury Durban Theatre Awards and is published by Two Dogs Press.

Tim Richman, publishing manager of Two Dogs, elaborates: “Defending The Caveman is considered the most successful comedy stage show of all time and has been seen by millions of people in more than 30 countries, but no-one had ever got around to writing a book about it. Tim Plewman, the renowned stage producer, director and actor, broke many South African theatrical records in his near decade of performing the “ultimate date play”. In writing the book, he has reproduced his personal script, adapted from Rob Becker’s original play, and illustrated it with the anecdotes, humour and insight that performing it around the country for nine years brings.

Tim Plewman worked for six months on the book. He explains that there are two distinct voices captured in it: the original lively and boisterous script in colloquial South African language, which delves into the relationship between men and women today; and his more reflective, though equally entertaining, recollections and commentaries.

Tim Plewman will be at Adams Booksellers in Musgrave Centre on December 11 from 11h00 to 12h00. He warmly invites all Caveman fans to meet him and share some anecdotes. He reminds friends that Adams has a delightful coffee shop area to take a break from festive season shopping.

Defending The Caveman is now available at leading bookstores. The recommended retail price is R120.
