"With his extensive experience and brilliant acting talent, Armand is perfect for the role of Marlowe and we are delighted to have him join our wonderful company of actors," says Daniel Galloway, Executive Director of the Fugard Theatre.
Written by Lee Hall and adapted from the Academy Award-winning (1999) screenplay by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman, the comedy ran for an extended sold out season at the West End's Noel Coward Theatre in London in 2014.
Young Will Shakespeare has writer's block, the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he is in desperate need of inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse - Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will's greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play.
Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will's love for Viola quickly blossoms and inspires him to write his greatest masterpiece.
