The South African State Theatre, in association with Theatrerocket present the hit comedy, Koekeloer! in April 2020.


Written by Braam van der Vyver, winner of the Nagtegaal award, Koekeloer! is a brand new, highly original South African farce, guaranteed to have the local audience in stitches. Following successful performances in 2019 at Innibos, Vrystaat Arts Festival and Aardklop, the production is now hitting the stages of the South African State Theatre in Pretoria.


Marie Coleské, a spinster from Koekenaap, and Marié Kok, a lingerie model from Ruimsig, are booked into the same flat in Stellenbosch, where they have to battle it out during the final round of the popular kykNET Koekedoor reality show. The two finalists are hilariously devious, but cooking hot in their bake-off to stardom.


Add to the mix a clumsy burglar, a jealous boxing champion, a jaunty lingerie designer, a solemn reverend, a contentious book and an upside-down cake, and you have the perfect recipe for every side-splitting misunderstanding imaginable!


Veteran actor Gavin van den Berg, renowned for his exceptional portrayal of the character Jacques Rynhard in the 80’s TV series Ballade vir ‘n Enkeling, plays the role of Reverend Vilonel (Voëltjie) de Groot – a man who quickly drops his stately act when he is introduced to the lacey side of racy underwear.


The rest of the cast is made up by popular actors, including  Ben Pienaar (7de Laan), Juanita de Villiers (Dancing with the Stars,Jana Kritzinger in Getroud met Rugby), Drikus Volscheck (Fiela se kind 2019 film, Brothers), DEURnis fan-favourite Roche van Blerk and the ATKV award-winning Èmil Haarhoff. The play is directed by Lihan Pretorius, assisted by Johan van der Merwe.


In 2019, Koekeloer! was a hit at Innibos Arts Festival, Freestate Arts Festival and Aardklop Festival.


Who will win the prestigious competition, who will lose their heads, and which leopard will change its spots? The audience will thoroughly enjoy having these questions answered. Those who don’t dare to Koekeloer! will definitely lose out on this hysterical, funniest farce of all farces!
