* The FUGARD – The Kingmakers


The Kingmakers
23 February – 19 March
A comedy about politicans. A tragedy about the people who vote for them. Winner of the 2015 Fleur du Cap award for Best New Script and Best New Director.

A ‘pitch black’ political comedy The Kingmakers follows a group of opposition-party strategists as they attempt to place a neutral party member in contention for leadership. After an internal power struggle leaves them out in the cold and on the fringes of the party, they come up with a plan to shape a seemingly ambition-less, but well-respected politician into a leader. With the help of a rising commercial corporation seeking political clout and possible government contracts, the stage is set for a merciless power grab and perhaps a chance at revenge.
