In a #smithfest final flourish we present two shows by way of a ‘nagereg’ (dessert) in Smithfield, where we’ve just hosted our first Platteland Preview. Students from the University of Pretoria will stay over with us for two nights this week on their way to Grahamstown’s National Arts Festival. They will perform award-winning productions of As Night Falls (Helen Martins of the Owl House in Nieu Bethesda) on Thursday and Chasing (Ingrid Jonker) on Friday. Tickets at the door of the town hall; shows start at 6.30pm both nights. Culture in the countryside!
