Elysium Theatre Company in association with Queen’s Hall Arts Centre, Hexham, present Playland by Athol Fugard – at The Hullabaloo on Sunday 3rd November 2019 at 7.30pm. There will be a Q&A after the show.

South Africa, New Year’s Eve 1989: a new country is about to be born. On a rundown funfair somewhere in the wilderness two men confront each other, one white, one black, both with blood on their hands. As night draws in, each must face what they have done, and work out their lives through their own journey of truth and reconciliation…

Athol Fugard is South Africa’s greatest living dramatist whose plays have been performed and filmed all over the world. Playland is a beautiful testimony to the power of the human spirit. With Danny Solomon and Faz Singhateh, plus Graham Eaglesham as the voice of ‘Barking’ Barney; directed by Jake Murray; designed by Louis Price.

“A rich examination of faith, morality and evil that men do… a fabulous example of why theatre is a powerful tool for change… a real theatrical treat.” North East Theatre Guide
