Die toneelstuk ontgin nie net Andre Huguenet se lewe as mens en akteur tot met sy tragiese einde nie maar ook die ironiese spel tussen toneel en werklikheid. Ondanks die hoe eise wat hierdie tweekuns aan 地 dramaturg stel, bevestig Fourie opnuut sy vermoe om boeiende, menslike toneel te skep wat toeganklik is vir die gespesialiseerde sowel as die minder ingewyde teaterganger.

Naelstring (Afrikaans, Paperback): Pieter Fourie Naelstring (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Pieter Fourie
R153 Discovery Miles 1 530 Shipped within 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.

Hansard; noun The official report of all parliamentary debates. It's a summer's morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital sparring quickly turns to blood-sport. A witty and devastating new play. Hansard premiered at the National Theatre, London, in August 2019.

Vrededorp (Afrikaans, Paperback): Charles. J. Fourie Vrededorp (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Charles. J. Fourie
R153 Discovery Miles 1 530 Shipped within 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."

R66 R54 Discovery Miles 540 Save R12 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Introduction and Notes by John S. Whitley, University of Sussex. Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

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. Dit was die tyd toe die Afrikaanse jeug polities bewus geraak en toe die grensoorlog 'n verwoestende uitwerking op duisende jong dienspligtiges gehad het. Met sprankelende dialoog en treffende tonele konfronteer Malan Steyn ons in hierdie drama met 'n nog steeds lewende verlede.

40th anniversary edition with a new introduction by Mike Leigh. Forty years on from its first performance at the Hampstead Theatre and original screening on BBC1 soon after, Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party - telling of two marriages spectacularly unravelling at an awkward neighbourhood drinks party - remains a pinnacle of British theatre. Here is the original script, complete with a new introduction by Mike Leigh describing the play's unlikely genesis, how it came to be made and where he believes it fits within his oeuvre as one of the country's leading writers and directors. 'The play came from my intuitive sense of the spirit and the flavour of the times, and from a growing personal fear of, and frustration with the suburban existence' Mike Leigh, from his new introduction 'Leigh's play isn't simply about marriage and Essex, but also about the unhappy state of the realm' Guardian

A sizzling drama of desire, avarice and deception set in the American Deep South, Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is published in Penguin Modern Classics. 'Big Daddy' Pollitt, the richest cotton planter in the Mississippi Delta, is about to celebrate his sixty-fifth birthday. His two sons have returned home for the occasion: Gooper, his wife and children, Brick, an ageing football hero who has turned to drink, and his feisty wife Maggie. As the hot summer evening unfolds, the veneer of happy family life and Southern gentility gradually slips away as unpleasant truths emerge and greed, lies, jealousy and suppressed sexuality threaten to reach boiling point. Made into a film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a masterly portrayal of family tensions and individuals trapped in prisons of their own making. Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) was born in Columbus, Mississippi. When his father, a travelling salesman, moved with his family to St Louis some years later, both he and his sister found it impossible to settle down to city life. He entered college during the Depression and left after a couple of years to take a clerical job in a shoe company. He stayed there for two years, spending the evenings writing. He received a Rockefeller Fellowship in 1940 for his play Battle of Angels, and he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1948 and 1955. Among his many other plays Penguin have published The Glass Menagerie (1944), The Rose Tattoo (1951), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), Sweet Bird of Youth (1959), The Night of the Iguana (1961), and Small Craft Warnings (1972). If you enjoyed Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, you might like Williams's The Glass Menagerie, also published in Penguin Modern Classics. 'Tennessee Williams will live as long as drama itself ... he is, quite simply, indispensable' Peter Shaffer, author of Equus

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.

My Life is based on the diaries of five South African girls who were growing into womanhood in 1994. The perspective of each young woman on her country and her people is conveyed with a mixture of naivety, exuberance, warmth and humour. A small Karoo town provides the setting for Valley Song, which explores the theme of youth in search of itself, and provides a lyrical metaphor for the new South Africa in which it was set, and has been termed one of Fugard's most endearing plays.
