Janet Suzman & Khayalethu AnthonyIt takes two: Solomon & Marion, featuring Janet Suzman and Khayalethu Anthony, earned Baxter's Lara Foot two Fleur du Cap Awards.

Lara Foot's play Solomon & Marion walked away with two awards at this year's prestigious Fleur du Cap Awards.

Solomon & Marion was named as the best new South African play, and former Baxter head Mannie Manim won for best lighting design.

Foot, CEO and director of the Baxter Theatre Centre, scooped a half dozen nominations for her 2011 production, a play that also marked Dame Janet Suzman's first return to the South African stage as a performer in 35 years.

But it wasn't Foot alone that flew the UCT colours at the awards.

Director of the Little Theatre, Associate Professor Christopher Weare, was honoured with a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to South African theatre.
