this is one of the best plays that i have ever read! i saw an excerpt from it performed in school and absolutly loved, so i had to buy the book. after reading it at least 10 times and lending it out to many friends, it is widley considered as one of the best plays of all time at my school.

My Children, My Africa is a great play that encompasses the entire theatre spectrum. I love this play and would like to play Thami in any production. Fugard is one of the most unique playwrights of our time.
