Pensioners will be treated to a pop-up show on Sunday. This follows the cancellation of the production “Common and Class” at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre at the University of KwaZulu-Natal‘s campus due to students’ protests.

Performer Ian Von Memerty says a group of protesting students allegedly held them hostage halfway through their performance.

It’s alleged that the students banged on the doors of the theatre demanding that they leave.

Von Memerty says they have decided to perform for the pensioners who were keen on watching the show.

“A group of pensioners have booked for today’s show and because they can’t move their booking to any other shows, we’re coming to them to do a performance this afternoon … We’re seeking pensioners who couldn’t come to any performance so we thought we would come to them and do a show for them.”
