Andrew and Lawrence are lovers; Jo and Saartjie are lovers. Jo and Andrew meet in a club, suitably intoxicated they go to Jo’s flat to come down …
and then they wake up “the morning after” and realise, “yes, they’ve done it!”
Are their respective lovers furious … or are they? The result of “having done it” is a pregnancy, a child, and high comic chaos as four very sexy and delightful young gay people, whose last thought in life is “children”, take on their responsibilities amid much high camp and down-to-earth coping. Myth of Andrew & Jo is just the romp for the festive season.
The play is directed by award-winning director, Roy Sargeant and features Ashraf Johaardien, Nicola Hanekom, Clayton Boyd and Lauren Steyn.
Myth of Andrew & Jo was presented as a showcase production in last year’s Artscape Spring Drama Season, playing to packed houses and lots of approval, now it comes to life as a full production with a different cast. At the Gay Theatre Festival in Dublin the play brought a nomination for Gideon van Eeden as Best Playwright. The production also secured Best Supporting Actress and another nomination for Best Actress.
Patrons are advised that there is partial nudity and strong language in the play.
