        District 6: Our Buckingham Palace

District 6: Our Buckingham Palace

Whenever you bought furniture from Mr Katzen he generously threw in a print of King George the VI and his Queen. They were hanging all over the District, hence the nickname Buckingham Palace.Acclaimed South African actor Basil Appollis celebrates the life and work of legendary writer Richard Rive and his tales of District Six - the heart of Cape Town ripped out because it stood in the way of grand apartheid fantasies. With the Mother City being World Design Capital 2014 this play shows us how important it is to redesign our skewed historic perspectives, to reflect on the contested wasteland at the foot of Table Mountain and to put District Six centre stage where it belongs. And it's all done with humour and style.
