Fugard Theatre

Theatre in East City, District Six, Woodstock & Observatory
Lucy Corne / Lonely Planet

Named in honour of Athol Fugard, South Africa’s best-known living playwright, this very impressive arts centre was created from the former Congregational Church Hall. There are two stages, the largest theatre also doubling up as a ‘bioscope’ – a fancy word for a digital cinema where top international dance and opera performances are screened.
