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.
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.
An African Villa staff will gladly reserve seats for you using the card details you supplied when making your reservation.
