My Boetie se Boetie se Boetie se Baba – back at Carnival City by popular demand

CCTY - Koffie

Back at Carnival City by overwhelming demand at the end of the month is London’s West End stage comedy – adapted for South Africa – My Boetie se Boetie se Boetie se Baba.

After sold out shows in July, My Boetie se Boetie se Boetie se Baba – adapted and translated by Frans Swart – will run at the Mardi Gras Theatre on Thursday, 27 August at 20h00; Friday, 28 August at 20h00and Sunday, 30 August at 15h00.

The show tells the hilarious story of Tom Koekemoer and his wife Linda who are in the process of adopting a baby. All that remains is a visit from the social worker, answering a few questions and the baby will finally be theirs.  However, things don’t work out that way.

While Tom is living a respected middleclass life, the same cannot be said of his brothers Dick and Harry.  It’s not that the brothers aren’t close but the threesome is clearly two-thirds dysfunctional.  Dick has just returned from Zimbabwe with contraband cigarettes and brandy, and Harry is trying to bury a cadaver in Tom’s garden.  To make matters worse, two illegal immigrants appear on the scene, the prudish social worker arrives, a never-say-die police constable becomes suspicious and the scoundrel Boris comes to fetch his payment. What transpire is a colossal mix up that will have audiences laughing breathlessly.

My Boetie se Boetie se Boetie se Baba features top local actors including Ana van Achterbergh, Botha Enslin, Cindy Swanepoel, Cobus Venter, Dirk Vermeulen, Duncan Johnson, Francois van Rensburg, Marga van Rooy and Phillru van Achterbergh.
