An evening not to be missed! Central to the SA Care Forum Festival theme “Celebrating the Richness of Ageing”, London Road is inter-generational friendship. This SA Care Forum fundraiser can be enjoyed at the world class theatre in the beautiful setting of Oude Libertas, thanks to the generosity of the Distell Foundation. Seating will be limited so be sure to book your ticket, or you will be disappointed. Tickets for the theatre evening may be booked together with your Festival booking or may be booked separately for anyone not attending the Festival.About London Road:
London Road is the moving, poignant story of the unlikely friendship between two women – neighbours in a seaside block of flats in Cape Town. Rosa (Robyn Scott) is an elderly Jewish widow. Stella (Ntombi Makhutshi) is a Nigerian immigrant cagey about the details of her import-export business. Their lives collide after an incident of violence, and they discover much in common — families scattered around the world, old grudges, lost loves and a fiery verve for life. It is both a funny and heartbreaking play that has had audiences laughing through their tears all over South Africa.Awards:
