"... a solid addition to international drama." --Library Journal
Going beyond the parameters of conventional literary drama, these seven new plays express life issues in post-apartheid South Africa--Islamic fundamentalism, women's rights, ecology, Afrikaans culture and the new multi-racial life of the inner city. While theater rooted in the anti-apartheid movement was rich and vibrant, it was also singleminded in focus, obscuring the diversity of South African culture now brought to life in these works.
