Join your favourite comedians Aaron McIlroy and Lisa Bobbert for a much-needed outing of hilarity! MacBob Productions present their smash hit comedy, Family Therapy, for a limited run at Seabrooke’s Theatre at DHS from March 19 to April 4, 2021.

Lockdown is not for sissies, and with everyone taking a knock, Family Therapy is the essential worker! Remember – laughter is the cheapest and best medicine around! So perk up folks: SA’s best-loved madcap couple is 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 McIlroy and Bobbert 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 audiences falling out of their seats.

Directed and choreographed by theatre ace Daisy Spencer, and hailed as “their best show ever” (review comment from 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. Evening performances of Family Therapy at Seabrooke’s are at 19h30 (Wednesdays to Saturdays), with 15h00 matinee performances on Sunday, March 21, Saturday and Sunday, March 27 and 28, and Saturday and Sunday, April 3 and 4. Tickets R180 (students & pensioners R160). Low price special for March 19 preview - R150.

Family Therapy runs from March 19 to April 4, 2021. Seabrooke’s Theatre is situated on the Durban High School campus in Musgrave. Bookings at Webtickets.
