Isn't this a great way to start the summer season in Cape Town? Alexander McCall Smith's delicious detective novels, starring the irresistible Mma Ramotswe who sorts out numerous problems from her No 1 Detective Ladies Agency in Botswana is about to be celebrated in a theatrical musical on stage at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, with its premiere on October 8.
Expect issues of morality, humour and love intertwined in the cases of fake fathers, beauty pageants and muti, which our beloved Mma Ramotswe solves, whilst building up her business with her friend and secretary Mma Makutsi–as well as falling for the comforts of motor mechanic JLB Makatini. With the back drop of the Botswana bush, the local villages, the traditional people and the great animals that live beneath Africa’s vastness, the story is brought to theatrical life by award -winning director Nicholas Ellenbogen. The music score is composed by Scotsman Tom Cunningham and Cape Town’s very own Josh Hawks (of Freshlyground).
The show runs until mid-December 2015.
Cost: R250 Booking: Webticket
