of Riverlea explores the life of renowned South African author Chris Van Wyk
- his influence as a poet and a writer and as a political activist, as well as his
family life and his battle with cancer. This production pays homage to his
humour, political values and his storytelling abilities, all of which have
touched the lives of everyone that he encountered and those who have read
his works.

adaptation of Shirley, Goodness and Mercy which played to full houses in the
Baxter Theatre Centre’s production which was also staged at the Market
Theatre in 2008. The Storyteller of Riverlea marks the fifth collaboration
between the two soapie stars, in a partnership that spans 12 years.
