Baxter artists-in-residence showcase new work

15 September 2015

The Baxter 2015 artists-in-residence, Alex McCarthy and Mdu Kweyama, will showcase two new works The White Man's Guide to Sacrifice and Reza de Wet's Missing at the Baxter Golden Arrow in October.

The White Man's Guide to Sacrifice is a farce written and directed by McCarthy. The quirky story centres around two young men who have just been accepted into the Lamborghini Club, but discover a cow in their expensive apartment. The friends are presented with a dilemma: sacrifice their place in the club, or seal their position in the blood of an innocent animal. The play opens on 2 October and runs until 10 October at 19h00 nightly. There is an age restriction of 15 years.

Mdu Kweyama breathes new life into acclaimed South African playwright Reza de Wet's Missing – the magical-realist play about a young daughter's escape from her dysfunctional rural family. Kweyama takes the play out of its Afrikaans idiom and places it into a universal realm combining more physicality with De Wet's poetic writing. Missing opens on 16 October and runs until 24 October at 19h00 nightly. There is an age restriction of 13 years.

Booking is through Computicket on 0861 915 8000, online at or at any Shoprite Checkers outlet.
