My Father's Coat

My Father's Coat is being performed at Camps Bay High School on 26th September - all profits are being donated to Ladles of Love soup kitchens.

@Ladles of Love‎

This unique show is always booked out months advance so this is a really great opportunity, and it's a wonderful way to support our kitchens and help feed more people.

My Father's Coat is the acclaimed new story by Michael Charton - the realisation of his decade-long ambition to make the incredible story of South Africa more accessible. For Michael’s belief is that our past, notwithstanding the trauma, holds within it great powers of unity.

This is South African history as it has never been told: An emotional and provocative story tracking two-hundred tumultuous years through the eyes of five, inter-connected and controversial protagonists: Mzilikazi, Kruger, Rhodes, Smuts and Mandela.

A beautifully crafted story providing new order and meaning to our notoriously complex past, at a time when our history has never been more relevant.

This particular performance is in partnership with Ladles of Love – all profits from the ticket sales will be donated to this charity who work to feed vulnerable people across Cape Town. They currently serve more than 2000 meals each week to the homeless community and to struggling schools.

Your ticket includes a welcome drink, snacks and ofcourse access to an amazing show.
