One of the great plays of the twentieth century. A real life changer. It needs to be read as if you're acting it, so that you can move from the sharp satire of the opening, through the laughter and sadness to its politically powerful ending. Although it focuses on the apartheid situation in South Africa in the late sixties, it retains relevance to worldwide situations where human beings abuse each other and the brotherhood of man breaks down. It is therefore likely to retain a permanent relevnace, unfortunately. Fugard manages to trap even the least political into political awareness via an exploration of emotions and issues that avoid sentimentality and sensationalism while fully confronting the power of the situations. To really read this play is to grow up politically.
