(Mark Mulder & Annie Robinson)
Michaelhouse’s Schlesinger Theatre presents the murder mystery The Strange Case Of The Freudian Trip.

Written by Paul Spence – the latest in his "Strange Case" murder mystery franchise! - it stars Annie Robinson and Mark Mulder. Robinson is a gifted comedienne and one of South Africa’s most accomplished actresses. Mark Mulder was last seen in Manhunt, shot in Munich. When not on television and movie screens, he flies hot air balloons!

It’s the mid-1950’s. Bill Haley and His Comets are shake, rattle & rollin’ in the USA. The Russians are aiming Sputniks into Space. An international crisis is brewing in the Suez… And at Misty Ridge College, a famous private boys’ school in the Natal midlands, there’s another crisis; a much loved master has simply disappeared into thin air

Join Seamus Maclear, the unlikely detective, as he attempts to unravel this dark, passionate mystery and unwittingly uncovers the scandalous truth that underlies The Strange Case of the Freudian Trip!

Performances take place in dinner theatre format on June 13 at 18h30 and June 14 at 13h30 in the Centenary Centre at Michaelhouse. Tickets R150 (Includes three-course meal - wine and beer sold at the bar). Book through Mrs Angela Jonsson at or call 033 234 1314 (weekdays between 08h00 and 13h00)
