DCC Members Benefit
The Playhouse takes pleasure in partnering with Durban Country Club, offering its members an on-going benefit of 20% discount, currently obtainable for the award winning stage show, Crepuscule, on 6th May at 14h00 and 7th May at 14h00. Crepuscule (which means ‘twilight’) is written by cultural icon Can Themba and adapted for the stage by award-winning director Khayelihle Dom Gumede. Based on Themba’s real-life romance with a white woman in the 1950’s, the story is set in the romanticised Sophiatown era and is described as a story about human connection and the search for freedom and humanity in a world that sought to deny it. Tickets for these performances are available via Computicket. All DCC members can phone reception to acquire the code in order to get their discount.
Durban’s Playhouse complex links the city’s present with its past. The current theatre facade preserves two of the city’s most famous landmarks, situated adjacent to each other in central Anton Lembende Street (formerly Smith Street) opposite the City Hall. They were first conceived as cinemas, namely the glamorous Prince’s Theatre which originated in 1926; and the grand Tudor-styled Playhouse, which originally opened its doors to public fanfares and capacity house in 1935. In the early 1980s, these two celebrated entertainment venues underwent expert renovation and conversion into a state-of-the-art, multi-venue theatre complex that faithfully preserved many of the buildings’ original characteristics and architectural features. This was officially opened in the mid ’80s as The Natal Playhouse, subsequently to become known by its present-day title The Playhouse, Kwazulu-Natal’s premier theatre complex and home of The Playhouse Company.
