Arts Theatre in Durban
Founded in 1981 by the late Professor Elizabeth Sneddon, the EST has the proud reputation of being the first theatre to service a drama department at an academic institution. The theatre is now also available for hire by outside companies, and therefore hosts a wide variety of independently produced events, ranging from corporate functions and launches to dance programs, childrens' shows, music reviews, rock concerts, comedy, satire and drama. In addition, the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre has a close association with the University's Centre for Creative Arts, playing host to such internationally reputed events as the Durban International Film Festival, Jomba! Contemporary Dance Experience, the Time of the Writer and Poetry Africa festivals.
The Wellington Tavern
The Wellington Tavern is the local watering hole for patrons of the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre and hosts commemorative opening night cocktail parties for productions playing at the EST, as well as celebratory get-togethers of cast and crew after the show.
The Wellington Tavern boasts an inviting balcony nestled among giant indigenous trees, providing the perfect venue for a cool sundowner on Durban's hot and humid evenings. The bar opens an hour before show-time and stays open as long as the crowd lingers! It stocks anything from beers and ciders to white and red wines and hard liquors. For those with a thirst of a different sort, the EST Coffee Shop, to the right of the theatre box-office, is yet another relaxing venue.
The EST's Coffee Shop
The EST's coffee shop is the ideal place to unwind after a long day at work and before the evening's entertainment. Mental resuscitation comes in the form of freshly percolated coffee, tea, and a selection of juices, cooldrinks and cakes.
This quaint but welcome facility has walls covered in posters of EST productions past and present, and offers a trip down the theatres' memory lane.
