Cape Town Fringe is back!


The Cape Town Fringe Festival, with the support of the City of Cape Town, brings a bold and sassy showcase of great theatre productions to our vibrant city from 24 September to 4 October 2015. With its own ever evolving artistic fingerprint, Artistic Director Ismail Mohamed says,


“It demonstrates how independent artists and arts companies are passionately engaging
with the world around them and bringing that experience to their work.
The programme includes work that has left audiences stunned at other festivals and theatres,
as well as fresh work from established companies and a selection of new voices.
We believe it is an invigorating mix that will blow audiences away…”
