The Fugard Theatre presents the world premiere of double Fleur du Cap writer award-winner Louis Viljoen’s The Eulogists.
The world media has descended on a small town to wait for a great statesman to die. Audrey, a flash-in-the-pan author who once had access to the leader and profited from it, has holed herself up in a room around the corner from the dying man’s family home. Zee is an ambitious researcher who dreams of breaking an exclusive story about the leader’s past and shares a room with Audrey and cabin fever has begun to set in. Thrown into this volatile situation is Harris, a correspondent for an American radio station who brings with him a few bottles of wine and a plan to end the boredom. Each of these three people have their own reasons for being stuck in this town and as the truth emerges, the inevitability of losing a person who represents hope becomes an unbearable burden.
