Round of Applause – South Africa Still Standing with Marianne Thamm, at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio, has been extended to Saturday September 2, due to public demand.

Performances for the extension are Wednesday August 30 to Saturday September 2, at 8pm nightly.

The veteran investigative journalist, columnist, author, satirist and stand-up comedian, Marianne Thamm, currently associate editor of the Daily Maverick, returns to the Baxter stage after 12 years, to present an evening of conversation and comedy, celebrating the strengths of South Africa’s democracy as she looks at the country’s recent past.

“We all know what is wrong or what went wrong in South Africa. But we also know what went right? Celebrate some groundbreaking moments about how our young democracy withstood a sustained and criminal onslaught on the state and how the country fought back. A lot is left standing believe it or not. 2024 is a big year for South Africa,” says Thamm.

“A general election is on the horizon. With the new Electoral Act and a wider range of candidates to choose from the political landscape is about to become more exciting. This is a pivotal moment in South Africa’s history. Are you ready for the ride.”

Thamm has worked in the media space for over three decades and her work has appeared in a variety of local and international newspapers and magazines.
