Press Release: The Unexpected Man

March 18, 2014

A man and a woman sit opposite each other in the detached intimacy of a train compartment. They have never met. He is a world famous author; she is the ardent admirer of his work. She carries his latest book in her bag. Silence...


This play is a literary masterpiece, written by the Tony Award-winning Yasmina Reza. Touching, funny and poignant, you get sucked into the imaginations of the two characters who are desperate to break out of their inner worlds and make a connection with each other. This highly acclaimed play has been performed to sold-out houses in Cape Town, as well as a successful run at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in 2013, and has earned a Fleur du Cap 2014 nomination. The cosy venue serves food and snacks, and has a fully stocked bar. Feel free to bring your drink into the theatre, and have a drink with the performers after the show.
