The Pervert Laura


The Pervert Laura played at the Fugard Theatre Studio after transferring from a successful run at the Little Theatre in December 2014. It ran at the Fugard from 6 to 23 May 2015.

The Pervert Laura is an uncomfortable journey into the dark heart of one woman’s past, and what awaits her in the darkness will reveal itself to be more monstrous than she ever thought. What starts as a study of a woman disassembling her life soon becomes a horrific odyssey through the past landscape and the demons awaiting her there.

“Explicit, erotic, depraved, critically engaging and ultimately utterly liberating. The cast of five achieve theatre of a calibre seldom attained…”

Cape Argus

“Viljoen carefully orchestrates the twists and turns with masterful agility.”

Broadway World

“You’ll walk out feeling exquisitely tortured.”
