Illustrated in colour. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 200 pages; From a truly groundbreaking voice in African theater, these three plays have disturbed and transported audiences in South Africa and abroad with their depictions of some uncomfortable episodes in South African history. From witch hunts in Kokstad and the saga of King Hintsa’s skull to the prophecies of Nongqawuse and the ensuing cattle-killing crisis, these plays touch on shared neuroses and fears, blending the tragic and transcendent with the farcical. With accompanying essays and working notes, the playwright gives background and insight into each of the productions and outlines his own artistic development and vision. This richly designed book re-creates something of the funky energy, haunting magic, and colorful imagery of the plays themselves. [597]
