The multi award-winning Karoo Moose is written and directed by Lara Foot Newton with set and lighting designs by Patrick Curtis choreography by Mdu Kweyama and music by Bongile Mantsai. In Johannesberg the production recently won eight Naledi Theatre Awards including Best New South African Play and Best Production of a Straight Play.

In a remote and impoverished village in the Karoo, South African, a young girl, Thozama, struggles to survive. A violent and terrifying incident and a chance encounter with an escaped moose change her life forever.
