Local comedian Marc Lottering’s hit show, Aunty Merle, The Musical is back for a return season at the Baxter Theatre, due to popular demand.
High drama unfolds as Merle’s daughter, Abigail, announces her engagement to Alan, “a good-looking white chap”. But it’s never smooth-sailing in the world of musicals. Abigail’s twisted and corrupt ex, Denver Paulse, who holds a dodgy top job at the SABC, is determined to get her back – and if not, threatens to reveal a very dark secret which is bound to tear the lovers apart.
Age restriction: PG 14
