It is Workers' Day and time for the workers to come out to play and discuss election day strategies! This powerful movie is set in 1946 Hamburg about five months after the Allied victory, as shell-shocked locals stumble through the piles of rubble that used to be their city and Allied troops try to maintain some semblance of order while searching for any remaining Nazi loyalists. One of the men charged with this mission is Lewis Morgan (Jason Clarke), a recently arrived British captain who, unlike most of his fellow soldiers, tries to treat the locals with some modicum of respect and dignity. So much so, that when he and his wife, Rachel (Keira Knightley), are sent to live in the lavish mansion that has been 'requisitioned' from recent widower Stefan (Alexander Skarsgard) and his teenaged daughter Freda (Flora Thiemann), he magnanimously offers to let them continue to live there instead of forcing them off to stay in a refugee camp. Rachel, who is still struggling to process her son's death in a bombing raid a couple of years earlier, is not especially thrilled with the arrangement and while Lewis and Stefan try to make the best of the awkward circumstances, she treats Stefan with barely disguised disdain. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal. Based on the novel by the same name by Rhidian Brook. Directed by : James Kent Starring : Keira Knightley; Alexander Skarsgård and Jason Clarke Movie starts at 14:30. Nibbles and chatter afterwards, as usual.

After performances in Australia (at the Sydney Opera House), Canada, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, it’s evident that Barry is not only one of South Africa’s favourite comedians, but a firm worldwide favourite. This is your chance to see him in action – and at his hilarious best – on local soil. Despite his great international appeal, Barry’s humour always comes with an unmistakably local flavour. Good, clean, family-friendly comedy, dished out in generous helpings, will keep you coming back for seconds, thirds and some more for dessert. This is comedy made up of one thing and one thing only: funny. No need for vulgarity, malice or personal attacks, but rather just a unique and entertaining view of the funny and fascinating aspects that make up a uniquely South African society – all presented in his trademark style that keeps an audience on the edge of their seats, constantly wanting more. His jokes are fresh, his perspective is unique and he is constantly moving forward (except maybe his hairline, but that’s a different story….). This is true local comedy – presented by a true local comic. It comes as no surprise that Barry was awarded the Lifetime Achiever Award by local comedians at the annual Comic’s Choice Awards. He is unflinching in his professionalism, his dedication to clean, accessible humour and he is guaranteed to lighten up even the cloudiest of days. So make you sure you don’t’ miss this opportunity to see one of the very best comedians – in South Africa and the whole world – in action at The Barnyard Theatres!
