Join Aaron McIlroy and Lisa Bobbert on this year’s digital National Arts Festival Fringe for Family Therapy, a virtual roller-coaster of hilarity! South Africa’s best-loved madcap couple are set to infuse some much-needed high-octane merriment into your day, as they navigate the rocky shoals of life on the home front!

With Aaron and Lisa at the top of their game, they take you with them on a wild and wonderful dive into the world of the family, and investigate what makes them tick or explode.

These comedic legends boldly go where billions have been before, and hilariously investigate the do’s and don’ts of living together in this strange arrangement we call family.

Mayhem prevails in this hugely entertaining musical comedy romp, as we renew ties with MacBob’s’ classic gallery of loopy principals, notably Bobbert’s overly assertive Charmaine, and her sorely put-upon hubby, Bruce, along with several unforgettable new-comers to the comedy scene who will have you falling out of your seat.

Directed and choreographed by theatre ace Daisy Spencer, and hailed as ‘their best show ever’ (Barry Meehan, artSMart), Family Therapy guarantees to have you and your loved ones singing along and screaming with laughter, not yelling at each other.

With a suggested age recommendation of 10 years plus, the not-to-be-missed show’s duration is one hour. Tickets are R50 booked on
