Artscape hosts the on-stage drama Die Reuk van Appels, as part of the 2018 Suidoosterfees programme.
The production takes place in summer 1973. Apartheid flourishes, Eddie Barlow’s cricket team is busy beating England at Newlands, the Americans begin to tighten their belts against the Communists in Vietnam, and in the Cape, eleven-year-old Marnus is learning what humanity and manhood means. A shocking discovery breaks through the surface, and changes his everyday life, irrevocably. From that moment onward, the smell of apples sticks to everything that affects Marnus.
The play is based on Mark Behr’s award-winning novel, and Gideon Lombard was awarded Kanna Award for Best Actor.
