Hg2 : The Hedonist

Kalk Bay Theatre

Built as a church in 1876, this remains a hugely atmospheric venue – perhaps the most charming of theatres in Cape Town – with all white on the outside (although now with a few upbeat neon strips to lure potential audiences) and pure vintage antique on the inside. Cushioned beechwood reproduction Morris chairs edge onto a polished wooden thrust stage, no bigger than a modest-sized lounge, making this an exceptionally intimate space, seating fewer than 80 people in three raked tiers. Overlooking the auditorium is a gallery with tables and chairs for patrons of the theatre’s fab little cafe-bar (with a proper menu). Performances are a mixed bag, but occasional gems make a visit truly worthwhile.
