19 April-6 May 2006. Begeerte meaning desire in Africaans is a tale of destructive passion based on award-winning American playwright Eugene ONeills modern classic Desire under the Elms. When a father brings home his young bride, he little foresees the impact that her arrival will have on his family. His youngest son at first loathes the newcomer before his hatred gives way to lust; the resulting conflict threatens to rock the peaceful farm to its core. Director Janice Honeyman has adapted Nerina Ferreiras translation of the original text to make it more accessible to a South African audience. Starring Marius Weyers, Anna-Mart van der Merwe and Jan Ellis. In Africaans. For adults only. Mon-Sat 20.00. Tickets R55-90.
