The historic Fugard Theatre has announced that it will be closing down permanently.
Fugard Theatre Founder and producer Eric Abraham released a statement online confirming the news yesterday.
He says due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, they don’t see the theatre being financially viable to reopen in the foreseeable future.
The theatre will now be handed back to the board of The District 6 Museum, to be used as a working theatre. He says it’s a sad day for South African theatre.
