Defending the Caveman (2017)

POSTER_CAVEMAN_20174 - 14 Oct 2017

The "only original" master of "Defending the Caveman", Tim Plewman,  is back touring South Africa, and returns to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 04 to 14 October.  There is currently an Early Bird Special running until August 18th, so book now through Computicket.  The standard ticket price is R180, but if you book during the Early Bird Special promotion, you pay only R140.

Tim Plewman`s way of managing to `capture` his audience in his hands is palpable. It is an incredible performance with one person on stage giving of his all. You can laugh one moment and be digging your partner in his/her ribs because of the truth of the comments, the next. All the tales ring home in such an incredible way. It is extraordinarily funny and worth every cent to spend an evening laughing which is as one knows is `medicine for the soul`!  Back by popular demand, Plewman puts new life and energy into `Defending the Caveman`, adding to his 1 604 performances of the longest-running and most successful solo comedy in South African theatre history.

"I am going to bring my wife here to see it", said Geoffrey Matenji from SAfm radio with tears rolling down his cheeks from laughter.


"Laugh, I nearly died! This play is not an exercise in soul-searching, it`s a belly laugh night out with similarly bemused friends" says Len Ashton (Weekend Argus)

"Here is the artistry of the human heart conveyed in a language that can only make you laugh till you cry." ? Mary Jordan, Arts Journalist
