Wanneer Dean September ontdek sy bakkie is gesteel, gaan hy op ’n reis van herinneringe. Alles het begin by sy 21ste verjaarsdag, toe hy die Nissan 1400 Bakkie as geskenk ontvang het. Die bakkie gee vir hom onafhanklikheid en sy lewe verander skielik onherroeplik. Dit sorg vir vele avonture, en hy herleef nou sy eerste liefde, hartseer, ‘n gebroke hart, pad-woede, kapings en die uiteindelike motor-diefstal. Met musiek uit die 90’s as klankbaan, ontmoet ons verskeie karakters en leer ken ons Kaapse bruin kultuur uit ‘n alternatiewe invalshoek.

Die diefstal van Le Cordeur se voertuig wat buite die Baxter-teater gesteel was het hierdie konsep geïnspireer. Dit terg met verhale van eerste liefde, hartseer, motordiefstal en woedendheid - verpak met 90's se musiek. Dit  maak ook gebruik van video-visuele bronne wat die Kaapse Wynlande uitbeeld, en gehoordeelname om die ervaring te verryk. 

Dude wa's my Bakkie? het vir die eerste keer in November 2018 by Alexander Bar Theatre & Café gespeel. Sedertdien het ons by die eerste Fringe-fees in die Woordfees-program in Stellenbosch opgetree, en by Suidoosterfees in Kaapstad waar die produksie die NATi (Nasionale Afrikaanse Teaterinisiatief) Jong Ster-toekenning vir 2019 tontvang het.
