Company: Hilton Arts Festival
Following sold-out performances and a sensational national tour (including the 2017 National Arts Festival main programme and the Fugard Theatre), the award-winning production Die Reuk van Appels features at the Hilton Arts Festival. Gideon Lombard stars in this stage adaption of the acclaimed 1993 debut novel by South African author Mark Behr, telling the coming-of-age story of Marnus Erasmus, 11-year-old son of a South African Defence Force (SADF) general. It eloquently captures the Afrikaner mentality in the late 1970s and early 1980s and the brutal consequences of apartheid and militarisation of South African life.
It is directed by Lara Bye. In the history of the festival, there has never been a play holding as many awards. It simply must be seen!
