"Library" on at the Artscape Arena

Library is a delightful new play about love and literature between some old shelves, and is an ideal opportunity for your staff or LIASA members to spend a festive evening at the Artscape Arena in Cape Town.

Written by Juliet Jenkin, who received much acclaim locally and abroad for The Boy Who Fell From The Roof, her latest inspired comedy Library forms part of the Artscape New Writing Program and is the last play in Artscape’s Spring Drama Season.

Library is on for a short two-week run from November 20 until December 2, with low priced previews from November 15 – 17, and starts at 18:00 The play runs for just over an hour,.

Directed by Francesco Nassimbeni, Library addresses important issues of race, romance and overdue books. This comedy of errors and novellas will confirm your suspicions about the dangers of light reading and heavy petting. It's fast, it's funny and it's all fiction.
