Flame in the Snow

Thu Nov 19, 19:30 - Sat Nov 21, 21:00
On Stage at Altitude


In a telegram sent on 29 April 1963, Ingrid Jonker thanks Andre Brink for his letter and flowers. They had met a few days before. He was almost 28, she 30. This was the beginning of a correspondence between two writers that lasted up until three months before Jonker drowned herself at Three Anchor Bay.

Over half a century later, read and performed by Cara Roberts and Mpilo Nzimande, selected letters between Andre and Ingrid bring to light their passion, their heartache, and their ultimate devastation as this gripping love affair unfolds. 

Flame in the Snow is an intimate reading of a hidden love affair between two prolific writers in South African history.

Doors open at 6pm. A cash bar is available - you are most welcome to bring your own picnic basket/snacks.. After the show we party the night away. Sadly we close at 11.45 to abide by the curfew rules.
