With nine of his plays either based in, or written in, Nieu Bethesda it certainly is fitting that this quaint Great Karoo town is the venue for the first annual Fugard Festival from 1 to 4 October 2009. The festival promises to be a fun-filled weekend that the entire family can enjoy, and in addition to a program incorporating some of this renowned South African playwright's most love works, the town itself is a treasure-trove of history and culture just waiting to be discovered.
As an accomplished writer, director and performer, Fugard has shown his commitment to the theater and to the people of South Africa regardless of race, background or station in life. Athol Fugard expresses himself in a way that has proven to be appealing to theater-lovers beyond the borders of his home country, thereby introducing a uniquely South African perspective to an international audience. Be sure to catch the Fugard Festival for a memorable and moving experience.
