#JUSTMEN Live At The Baxter Theatre

Are men doing enough to tackle the scourge of violence against women and children?


The Baxter Theatre Centre’s latest flagship production #JustMen, which calls for men to unite and take a stand, will have its world premiere at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio, for two weeks only, from 13 to 30 June, at 7.30pm nightly.

With the worldwide outbreak of the #MeToo disclosures, which has seen countless women breaking the silence on sexual harassment and assault, it has been a long time coming for men to take collective ownership of what is, at its core, a man’s issue. Moreover, the frequent cases of abuse, rape and murder perpetrated against children and women in South Africa and other countries, have reached explosive and unacceptable proportions.

#JustMen is an attempt to heed the critical need for action and change this frightening reality as it tackles the problem head-on. This brand new production, made possible through funding from the City of Cape Town, is a clarion call to address the issue.

Directed by Heinrich Reisenhofer (Joe Barber, Suip!), the dynamic cast is made up of Loukmaan Adams (Aunty Merle, The Musical, Kat and the Kings), Thando Doni (Ityala Lamwele, Ubuze Bam), Sherman Pharo (Suidooster, Vinkel en Koljander) and Johan Baird (Sewende Laan, Generations). Together, they have devised the play through a rigorous workshop process spanning four weeks of research and rehearsals.

#JustMen is an honest and empowering multi-lingual, docudrama for men, about men, performed by South African men who tell their own stories and take a stand against the epidemic of gender violence in the country.

#JustMen runs at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio from 13 to 30 June at 7.30pm nightly and tickets cost R120. Booking is through Webtickets or selected Pick n Pay stores. For discounted group or block bookings contact Leon van Zyl on 021 680 3972 or email him at leon.vanzyl@uct.ac.za.
