Follow this unusual boy’s journey from loathing and fear to one of light and unconditional love, and find your hearts being warmed, softened and lightened. 
Jakob is a modern day fable, a story of light and darkness, love and hate and redemption adapted from the short story written by Michael Broderick and beautifully crafted and lit by Michael Broderick. 
It runs from 18 - 29 June at the DHS Seabrooks Theatre nightly at 7.30pm, opening onWednesday 18 and running until Sunday 29. Wed to Sat at 19h30 and Sun at 18h00. No shows on Mon or Tues.

Guitarist / songwriter Nibs Van Der Spuy is hedging up to his half century and has clocked up decades of experience in the performance field. He will be in KZN on the last weekend of June, performing two concerts sponsored by Concerts SA, a joint South African/Norwegian initiative which supports venues and artists in South Africa by creating sustainable live music platforms. 
Nibs loves discovering music from all over the world and counts himself fortunate to have shared the bill in various festivals worldwide with amazing musicians. He has also wisely capitalised on the beautiful, small venues in which he has performed to record some of his works live. He launchedBeautiful Feet in France, an event which gave him a sense of achievement and a belief in his destiny. He followed this with the double CD Driving North, Crossing Borders, a collection of old and new compositions, featuring collaborations with old friends as well as solo performances. 
Come and listen to Nibs Van Der Spuy - he will be performing under the Concerts SA banner at Durban’s popular KZNSA Gallery on Friday 27 June at 19h00 and at Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday 28 at 14h00.
