16 Jan-11 Feb 2006. Angels Everywhere is a comedy drama exploring life in the Manenberg township on Cape Towns Cape Flats ten years after the end of apartheid. The play revolves around childless couple Gafsa and Dullah, who have unofficially adopted the neighbours 12 children, Gafsas best friend Hadji Fatiema Abraa-haams and her son Salie, nicknamed Skoppie, a feared local gangster. When Salie does not return home Hadjis search for her son leads her to a local drug lord, with amusing yet chilling consequences. However, Manenberg-born and raised co-writer Abduragmaan Adams insists that Angels Everywhere is not a gangster play: It simply documents life as it is in Manenberg today, exploring relationships, he says. It deals with the impact and ripple-effect of gangsterism and drugs on communities and families. Three languages are used in the play: Afrikaans, gangster patois and Arabic. Directed by Oscar Petersen, with Abduragmaan Adams, Bronwyn van Graan, Grant Powell and Charlton George. Mon-Sat 20.15. Tickets R35-R70. 16-year age restriction due to language.
