Last Tuesday, The Cultch hosted the Canadian premiere of Cadre, presented with Chicago Shakespeare Theater and Richard Jordan Productions Ltd in association with the Market Theatre of Johannesburg.
This story of a South African freedom fighter during apartheid is extremely powerful and is blowing audiences and critics away.
Check out some of the reviews here:
“If you want theatre that grabs you by the throat, brain and/or balls – if you want theatre that shows you a life and world that is likely beyond your imagining – if you like to feel things and be moved by live performance, then you should see this play!” — David C. Jones, OUT TV
“Scars of apartheid offer intense audience experience” —Erika Thorklenson, The Vancouver Sun
“Hits home because it’s so relevant in Canada…skilled and important. It’s a postcard we should be grateful to receive” —Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight
“A devastatingly powerful piece. Cadre reminds us of the real price of freedom” —Mark Robins, Vancouver Present
Be sure to see this powerful and emotional performance before it closes! Here are some photos of our opening night reception. All photos were taken by our volunteer photographer, WendyD.
Cadre runs until March 8 at the Historic Theatre. Tickets start from $19 and are available on our website or by calling the box office at 604-251-1363.
