/’Fri:Dem/! (pronounced “freedom” is devised by the Playhouse Actors Studio. It is a retrospective look at what our freedom means to us today.

Using classical South African theatre works, images and sound, the play seeks to find the meaning of what we have achieved as a country: what challenges we have faced and how we deal, with them?

The text selected celebrates the contributions of writers, photographers, actors and musicians to the South African struggle and their continued voices.

/’Fri:Dem/! Is researched and curated by Matjamela Motloung, with directing mentorship by theatre stalwart Ralph Lawson.

/’Fri:Dem/! forms part of the Playhouse Company’s New Stages project and runs in the Playhouse Loft  from May 25 to 28 at 14h00 and 19h00. Tickets R60 booked at Computicket.
