Return of the caveman

2018-10-17 06:04

TIM Plewman, by public demand, once again dons the Caveman’s skins and steps onto stage to add to his record breaking slew of sold out performances of the longest running and most successful solo comedy in South African theatre history.

Defending the Caveman returns to KZN, playing at the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg, on Friday, November 2 and at the BlackRock Hotel in Newcastle on Saturday, November 3. Booking is now open through Computicket.

The Broadway production still holds the record of the longest running non-musical solo comedy of all time.

This iconic production humorously exposes the hunter and gatherer in us all and has played to over a million people.

Penned by Rob Becker, Plewman adapted the script for SA and went on to win the Vita Award for Best Actor in a Comedy.

Updated, upgraded and totally up-loadable to today’s world of tweets, selfies and six million Facebook friends, this production is still an hilarious, affectionate and insightful comedy that explains why men and women see the world so differently, and will have you looking at your partner with new eyes.

After years of hearing that all men are assholes, the Caveman once again stands up to be counted. And, being a troglodyte, standing upright is not an easy thing to do.

Plewman has become one of the most sought after actors in SA, equally at home in drama or comedy. He is an actor, dancer, writer, humourist, director, and producer.

Since his first leading role in 1978, Plewman has remained at the very top of the acting world for over 30 years, starring in plays, musicals and TV shows.

He has won five Best Actor/ Best Director Awards, has written two books and a half dozen plays and TV specials.

His book, Fitness For Old Farts, reached Number 10 on the best sellers list in SA, and he does motivational speaking countrywide, inspiring the over 50’s to regain fitness, flexibility and fun.
