Herman Charles Bosman aka David Butler comes to Smithfield

Smithfield’s Red Barn will host a special show this weekend: ‘A Teacher in the Bushveld’ with David Butler as Herman Charles Bosman.

During the Platteland Preview festival in June, Butler won himself many local fans with his performance as jailed political leaderBram Fischer. And he became something of a Smithfield fan as well, promising he’d be back in town with ‘something quite different’. Now, here it is – an award-winning performance as the beloved South African short story writer, Herman Charles Bosman, retelling stories about the characters he met in the Groot Marico.

Doors open for David’s show at 7pm on Friday evening and the performance begins 7.30 sharp. Tickets available at Wilgers and Saamkom in Smithfield. Coming from out of town? – contact plattelandpreview@gmail.com and we’ll help you organise your ticket.

David’s on his way to the Groot Marico Bosman festival; catch him in Smithfield!
