The Pioneer Theatre was an avant garde venue founded in Johannesburg by Leo Kerz in the late 1930s. The theatre was used to stage a number of cutting edge European and American plays from the 1930s. All designed by, and most probably directed by, Leo Kerz.
The theatre probably closed at the end of 1941, when Kerz left for the USA.
