Die Rypmaakkamer

Spring 1944 – Seven Soviet Soldiers have been captured by the Nazis, stripped naked and abandoned in the locked empty cellar of a monastery in southern Poland. Deprived of all ties to their world, the prisoners redefine their concepts of order and human nature. In order to survive the men resort to murder and cannibalism. Breaking rank and breaking flesh collide - how do they reconcile rank, faith and dignity in such circumstances?  Powerful, thought-provoking with moments of dark humour, Die Rypmaakkamer, Frans Swart’s adaptation of David Ian Lee’s The Curing Room is a bold, daring thriller inspired by true events.

With David Konrad, Mauritz Badenhorst, Dirk Joubert, Anele Situlweni, Gregg Pettigrew, Nathan Hammond and Zack Mtombeni, Die Rypmaakkamer will be on stage in the John Kani Theatre at The Market Theatre from 11 to 30 June, with performances at 20:00 from Tuesdays to Saturdays, and matinees at 15:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.
