“CRACKS AND THE VILLAGE” @ EVITA SE PERRON
WITH THE ALL FEMALE COMEDY LINE-UP: veteran actress Anthea Thompson, the uproarious Shimmy Isaacs, the irresistible Anne Hirsch and the hilarious veteran columnist Marianne Thamm will do Darling for one night only.

This is before the successful quartet begins their three-week run of their show Cracks And The City at On Broadway in Cape Town.
Cracks And The City caused a minor comedy sensation when it first ran for only a week at the Baxter’s Flipside venue in July. The show was hosted by honorary Crack, Marc Lottering, and word of mouth soon saw almost full houses. If you missed it then make sure you catch this
unique line-up of some of the city’s funniest women.
