UCT alumnus Rehane Abrahams’s bold and provocative one-hander Womb of Fire comes to the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio for a short season.

The show, directed by co-creator and UCT senior lecturer Sara Matchett, has gained acclaim since its premier at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in 2017.

Cue Media at the National Arts Festival said, “Womb of Fire explores the female body in its embodiment of power and agency. There is no better performer to encapsulate this than Abrahams – the precision of her movements and the authority of her voice combine to envelope the audience in a display of powerful femininity.”

Womb of Fire previews at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio on 18 April, opens on 19 April and runs until 5 May at 20:15 daily. There is an age restriction of 13 years.
