Theatre enthusiasts are in for a treat when women in the arts comes to The Drama Factory in Cape Town for the second annual Women’s Month Festival – Your Stage, Your Voice. Women’s Month is jam-packed with a variety of treats. The festival, which will run until August 20, honours South African women through music, comedy, and theatre.
The Drama Factory and F Creations are the organisers of this event which showcases female-centric productions and feature works written and performed by women. Faeron Wheeler of F Creations, the co-producer of the festival, said:
“Our aim for the festival is to promote women working in the arts, as well as give a voice to female stories, honouring the strength and tenacity of women in South Africa. We are also striving to create jobs and income for the arts sector that is still finding its feet after the pandemic.”
Women from diverse backgrounds will get together to showcase their talents in an event that is open to the public.
The festival’s programme features Kim Blanché Adonis in Mike van Graan’s acclaimed satire “He Had it Coming,” Erika Breytenbach-Marais in Gail Louw’s powerful play “The Good Dad,” Rocksteady’s “Women Of Rock Tribute Show,” which is sure to get you dancing, including the delightful physical comedy “‘n Gek vir Jou,” performed by Ané Koegelenberg and Christie van Niekerk, the romantic comedy “The Authentic Way to Fake It” by Angelica Hattingh and Bianca Rasmussen as well as the wonderful drag musical “The Muses: Hades Gonna Hate”.
