FROM KOE’SIESTES TO KNEIDLACH… WITH KIDS


3rd – 21st May

Starring Chantal Stanfield

Following the success of its debut production at Theatre on the Square, Chantal Stanfield once again teams up with director Megan Choritz to bring the sequel to the hugely successful and uniquely South African comedy, From Koe’siestes to Kneidlach…. with Kids. This hilarious kosher comedy follows the bizarre, funny and true story of what happens when a girl from the Cape Flats falls in love with a Jew-ish boy from Joburg’s East Rand. The new show picks up a few years after the mixed-race-mixed-everything- happy couple get married and ride off into the shabbat sunset. Now there’s a “beige” baby on the way with a myriad of cultural, religious and familial issues to navigate. Join us for this perfect entertainment as Stanfield reminisces, in her inimitable way, on love, life and cultural biases.
