langarmThe Fugard Theatre presents Langarm, the latest musical created by the award-winning David Kramer, during the festive season.

He was white. She was not. They broke the law to dance. Produced and presented by Eric Abraham, Langarm is a story of love and intrigue set in the story-world of Cape Town’s ballroom dance culture in the 1960s. With the the threat of the new Apartheid laws hanging over their heads, people do almost anything to survive.

In 1965, when Dinah Levin is widowed, she invites her nephew Jeff, whose fiancé has just dumped him to help her manage her late husband’s Canterbury Hotel. Here he meets the lovely, young ballroom dancer Angelina, and when she asks him to partner her in The Swaziland Ballroom Championships, he sees it as an opportunity to humiliate his ex. Aware that he is risking arrest by flouting the law, he throws caution to the wind and agrees. Jeff decides to rejuvenate the hotel by offering langarm dances. When Eddie Jephta, the leader of the Moonlight Serenaders langarm band comes to play at The Canterbury Hotel, Dinah has to confront the secrets of her past.
