Post mortem (Afrikaans, Paperback): Pieter Fourie Post mortem (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Pieter Fourie

Drie hopies grond van drie grafte en die drie mense aan wie die grafte behoort: Vytjie, Basjan en Gulu. Elkeen moet vertel hoe hy of sy aan sy dood gekom het. Trien is die sameroeper van hierdie byeenkoms na die dood. Sy behartig die post mortem. Hoe het dit gebeur dat haar man, haar huiswerker en plaaswerker dood is? In hierdie drama deur Pieter Fourie moet Basjan, Vytjie en Gulu aan Trien vertel en demonstreer wat gelei het tot hul dood.

Naelstring (Afrikaans, Paperback): Pieter Fourie Naelstring (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Pieter Fourie
R153 Discovery Miles 1 530 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Naelstring belig die problematiek van transformasie in 地 nuwe Suid-Afrika en die soms fanatieke eise van swart bemagtiging. Die drama sentreer rondom 地 moeder wat weier om haar pasgebore baba se naelstring te knip. Die baba is egter nie bereid om die absurde situasie gelate te aanvaar nie en neem sy gehoor op 地 reis van swart komedie en deernisvolle maar pynlike interaksie. Pieter Fourie, dramaturg en dramaveteraan, is waarskynlik die enigste Suid-Afrikaanse kunstenaar wat diep spore as toneelspeler, regisseur, artistieke direkteur en skrywer getrap het. Met Naelstring deurbreek die bekroonde dramaturg Pieter Fourie opnuut die grense van sy oeuvre.

Vrededorp (Afrikaans, Paperback): Charles. J. Fourie Vrededorp (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Charles. J. Fourie
R153 Discovery Miles 1 530 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Charles J. Fourie se Vrededorp handel oor die geboorte van die Nuwe Suid-Afrika in 1990 en 1994. Dit is egter nie net 'n poltieke drama nie. Die oortuigende en diepgaande karakteruitbeelding sorg dat dit 'n algemeen menslike trefkrag het. Die drama bestaan onder meer uit 'n toneelstuk binne 'n toneelstuk. Samuel Beckett se Waiting for Godot word deur drie van die karakters opgevoer. Die absurde situasie van Beckett se stuk kry 'n besondere sinvolheid in Fourie se verwerking daarvan. Die stuk eindig met 'n fiktiewe, gespeelde vooruitflits na 2004. Dit plaas die voorafgaande gebeure in 'n nuwe, skrynende perspektief. Vrededorp is bekroon met die 2005 KKNK / Nagtegaal toekenning vir Beste Nuwe Drama. Kobus Burger, Beeld se teaterresensent, het van die stuk gese: "Fourie vermeng die persoonlike, sosiale, politieke en maatskaplike meesterlik in 'n verhoogwerk wat 'n mens diep raak."

The Wizarding World journey continues . . .

The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most of whom are unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second screenplay in a five-film series to be written by J.K. Rowling, author of the internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Set in 1927, a few months after the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and moving from New York to London, Paris and even back to Hogwarts, this story of mystery and magic reveals an extraordinary new chapter in the wizarding world. Illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.

They range from the early apprentice work of the brash but vital Sophiatown plays, No-Good Friday and Nongogo, to the freer, more urgent, and profound New Brighton plays, including the most famous Sizwe Bansi is Dead and The Island, and the previously unavailable The Coat.

Toe was hulle jonk, dronk en rebels. Nou is hulle voorstedelik en ontnugter. Die dood van hulle universiteitsvriend Johnny bly egter nog 'n raaisel iets wat al vier steeds na al die jare teister. Dit is 'n vernuftig opgeboude stuk waarin die onstuimige laat-tagtigerjare in Suid-Afrika oortuigend uitgebeeld word.

'To die will be an awfully big adventure.' Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up, is one of the immortals of children's literature. J. M. Barrie first created Peter Pan as a baby, living in secret with the birds and fairies in the middle of London, but as the children for whom he invented the stories grew older, so too did Peter, reappearing in Neverland, where he was aided in his epic battles with Red Indians and pirates by the motherly and resourceful Wendy Darling. Peter Pan has become a cultural icon and symbol for escapism and innocence, remaining popular with both children and adults. In this collected edition, Robert Douglas-Fairhurst brings together five of the main versions of the Peter Pan story, from Peter Pan's first appearance in The Little White Bird, to his novelisation of the story, the stage version, and unrealised silent film script. This edition contains a lively introduction, detailed explanatory notes, original illustrations, and appendices that include Barrie's coda to the play that was only performed once.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a genius, the most brilliant musician the world will ever see. But the court of eighteenth-century Vienna doesn't recognize his talents - only Antonio Salieri, the Court Composer, does, and he is tortured by what he hears. Seething with rage at the genius of this flippant buffoon and suddenly aware of his own mediocrity, Salieri declares war and sets out to destroy the man he sees as God's instrument on earth. Peter Shaffer's award-winning play is a rich, exuberant portrayal of a God-like man among mortals, and lives destroyed by envy.

To celebrate the millionth copy sold of Howard Zinn's great People's History of the United States, Zinn drew on the words of Americans -- some famous, some little known -- across the range of American history. These words were read by a remarkable cast at an event held at the 92nd Street YMHA in New York City that included James Earl Jones, Alice Walker, Jeff Zinn, Kurt Vonnegut, Alfre Woodard, Marisa Tomei, Danny Glover, Myla Pitt, Harris Yulin, and Andre Gregory.

From that celebration, this book was born. Collected here under one cover is a brief history of America told through dramatic readings applauding the enduring spirit of dissent.

Here in their own words, and interwoven with commentary by Zinn, are Columbus on the Arawaks; Plough Jogger, a farmer and participant in Shays' Rebellion; Harriet Hanson, a Lowell mill worker; Frederick Douglass; Mark Twain; Mother Jones; Emma Goldman; Helen Keller; Eugene V. Debs; Langston Hughes; Genova Johnson Dollinger on a sit-down strike at General Motors in Flint, Michigan; an interrogation from a 1953 HUAC hearing; Fannie Lou Hamer, a sharecropper and member of the Freedom Democratic Party; Malcolm X; and James Lawrence Harrington, a Gulf War resister, among others.
