..". a solid addition to international drama." -- LibraryJournalGoing beyond the parameters of conventional literarydrama, these seven new plays express life issues in post-apartheid South Africa --Islamic fundamentalism, women's rights, ecology, Afrikaans culture and the newmulti-racial life of the inner city.
