Êrens innie Toekoms: The Premiere

calendar Postponed
The Labia Theatre


It is finally here! The moment many of us have been waiting for: the Premiere of Êrens innie Toekoms.

Êrens innie Toekoms [Somewhere in the Future] is inspired and motivated by the warmth and the cold of the Cape Flats, specifically Manenberg. We grapple with the struggles faced by Christopher Marais and his family - discriminated against for speaking an unrecognised minority language, treated as inferiors, but later on proven to be victors.

After being denied a job at a new company because of the language he speaks, he teams up with Andrew Smith, a language expert and activist and together they take on a case that will eventually change the linguistic landscape of South Africa, creating recognition for minority languages and their speakers.

Filled with drama. Action. Love. And perseverance. It is simply a story for everyone.
