This delightful, warm and amusing musical, which Die Burger described as “Lekker soos vars snoek”, presents a slice of life of Tommy the Kalk Bay fisherman.
Tommy's family have fished the local seas since before the railway line wound its way around the bay. Seymour Howe's delicately written play of inter- woven stories about Tommy’s life leads the audience in a mystical journey from Kalk Bay to Devil's Peak, sharing his simple insights into life, laughter and loss with the two loves of his life, his faithful boat, MARAAI KB683 and his not-so faithful "goose" Maraai.
David Muller, recently seen in Imagining Einstein, plays Tommy and he is joined by the deeply insightful local singer- songwriter Bill Knight singing his songs which inspired Howe to write Harbour.
First performed ten years ago, Harbour: the Kalk Bay Musical is back by invitation at the Kalk Bay Theatre. And, as an extra for those that have seen the show, this three week season will have an added tale to tell - some new developments have motivated Tommy to seek alternate income as it were!
Original artwork, some created during the show, will be auctioned afterward for charity.
Harbour: the Kalk Bay Musical is written and directed by Seymour Howe, performed by David Muller and all songs are written and performed by Bill Knight.
