Courtyard Playhouse presents Speechless, showing off Cape Town’s silly side where presenters give presentations with no preparation.
Entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members are put on the spot with nothing more than a stage, a microphone and a PowerPoint deck full of surprising images that they’ve never seen. A virtual wheel determines at random what kind of talk they have to give — it can be a TED Talk, a new app being launched, a quarterly report, even a wedding toast — and then the venue’s presenters do the best job they can to try to get through the show while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.
Aside from its opening night, Speechless is running on the first Tuesday of every month until April.
Venue: Courtyard Playhouse, 76 Strand St, Cape Town (Formerly Alexander Bar)
Time: 8pm | Sat Opening Event 7pm to 10pm
