|Cathy and the Trolley Dollies |
14 Feb 17
Cathy and the Trolley Dollies isn’t a show – it’s an entire aviation-themed sensory experience. I hadn’t heard of the newly renovated Gate 69 theatre and bar on Bree Street until my review, but I’ll certainly be back.

07 Feb 17
This one-woman show about the trials and tribulations of dating in your thirties stars Alicia McCormick. The script (apparently based on real occurrences) was written by frustrated thirty-something singleton Samantha Gray. The theme must strike a chord in Cape Town, as the play was sold out the evening I attended.

|Transkaroo bring haar padkos! |
04 Sep 16
Transkaroo bring haar padkos! Is Afrikaans for ‘Transkaroo bring her food for the road’.
This is a play on words from the opening lyric of the South African hit television show of the eighties, named Transkaroo.
*English translation: Transkaroo bring her home
This hour-long series told stories of love, adventure and even diamond smuggling aboard the Transkaroo express train. The three lovable schoolboys who were the main characters; Vollie, Boeta and Braam, university students who spend their December holidays working as waiters on the train, provided much comedy relief to the show.

03 May 16
Countless times I have driven past the majestic Westin in Cape Town’s city centre and wondered exactly what it entails. I had heard of the ON19 restaurant and the Heavenly Spa both aptly situated on floor 19, with panoramic views of the ocean, mountain and pretty much everything the light touches.
