The Baxter Theatre presents local comedian Marc Lottering’s new musical-comedy show, Aunty Merle, The Musical. This performance, written by Lottering and musical direction by Alistair Izobell, focuses on the comedian’s “most beloved character” Aunty Merle Abrahams from Belgravia Road in Athlone.
High drama unfolds as Merle’s daughter Abigail (Tarryn Lamb) announces her engagement to Alan (Stephen Jubber) – a “good-looking white chap”. Abigail’s twisted and corrupt ex, Denver Paulse (Loukmaan Adams), who holds a dodgy top job with the SABC, is determined to get her back. If not, he threatens to reveal a very dark secret which is bound to tear the lovers apart.
Age Restriction: PG14
