The Fall

Fresh from its resounding success at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, The Fall returns to the Baxter stage for a short season, having received two top awards, four 5-star reviews and standing ovations at every performance. The dynamic cast is back to wow South African audiences in the wake of global events that remind us that decolonisation is still a relevant, vital and urgent topic all over the world.

When the statue of Cecil John Rhodes was dismantled at the University of Cape Town, seven postgraduates wrote this searing, insightful play about race, class, gender, sexism, colonialism and ideologies of patriarchy. It took South Africa by storm during the #RhodesMustFall, #FeesMustFall and subsequent student movements’ demonstrations in 2015. Seeking to unpack discrimination in all its forms, the play does not offer solutions to the questions raised by the movements which inspired it, but hopes to create and nurture dialogue.
