Cape Town’s Sugar-daddy theatre company is celebrating its milestone 10th birthday, in 2020, the year of Covid-19. Marlisa Doubell who founded the independent company, along with other creatives has handed over the operations to Lizanne Peters, but will continue to play a role in the company, from London, where she will be based for the next five years. In a decade, the company has built up an impressive archive of work. List of productions, follow after boards, with some of the Sugar-daddy productions.
