Description

As South Africa continues to advance towards the fulfilment of its visionary constitution, significant shifts in the mode, style, and theme of its nation’s theatre have begun to take hold. The four plays in this collection, by Lara Foot Newton, Mike van Graan, Motshabi Tyelele and Craig Higginson, offer insights into an emerging national identity. The primary themes explored in the four texts – reconciliation, matriarchy, justice, accountability, corruption, truth, memory, and violence – reflect on the challenges and questions South Africans are confronted with in their nascent democratic state.
