Press: The guys from Platform 9 are at it again!

November 8, 2015

Two of SA’s sexiest and talented TV stars set to entertain Audiences on stage this summer! Cape Town theatre lovers are in for a treat this festive season when Maurice Paige and Theodore Jantjies, return to the stage to entertain audiences in PLATFORM 9 TO Park Station, the sequel to the popular PLATFORM 9 production, from 14 December 2015 to 16 January 2016 at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio.

 

Written and directed by Christo Davids, the hilarious two-hander performed in Afrikaans with some English, has sold-out theatres throughout the country. This collaboration realises a lifelong dream of working together for three award winning soapie stars who grew up on the same street in Heidelberg – Davids (7de Laan’s Errol), Jantjies (7de Laan’s Xander) and Paige (Isidingo’s Calvin); proving that their talents are as diverse as the characters they portray.

Theo, a chef, has been invited to cook at a celebrity’s wedding that will be covered by Top Billing and his best friend, Mau, an aspiring rapper, agrees to help him get there if he can perform. After eventually embarking onto the train on PLATFORM 9 at Cape Town Station, the two friends are en route to Park Station, Johannesburg where they meet a variety of unique characters travelling to somewhere in our country.

 

Will the two eventually make it to Johannesburg with all the obstacles they have to face on the train? Will Maurice find his way back to Theo after the train has left him behind in Colesberg? Sadness and tears, happiness and laughter combined with a couple of familiar characters accompany the audience from PLATFORM 9 TO Park Station.

Christo Davids, award winning actor (You Spectacular and Tempo Awards for Best Actor in 7de Laan and KKNK’s Best Actor Award for My name is Ellen Pakkies), is also the Artistic Director for Cape Heart Theatre Company and has affirmed himself as an accomplished writer and director with credits such as Bullets over Bishop Lavis (recently nominated for Best New SA Script - Kyknet Fiestas Award), Shirley Goodness and Mercy, and the recent critically acclaimed, Woman Alone.

 

Theo and Maurice both graduated from Northlink College with Diplomas in Performing Arts and while Theo received the Kyknet Fiestas Best Supporting Actor Award for his performance in Vaselinetjie and the Huisgenoot Tempo Award for Best Soap actor in 2014, Maurice received the You Spectacular Best Newcomer and People’s Choice Awards for his role in Isidingo. Both actors were listed in the Top 10 SA’s Sexiest Men competition.

 

“Through storytelling, music and dance, these two award - winning actors take the audience on a highly entertaining journey which they will not forget. Ultimately it is a story of friendship.” – Christo Davids
