Craig Higginson's first three plays for adult audiences - collected
here in one volume - represent one of the strongest debuts in
contemporary South African theatre. Although each can be seen as a
variation on the theme of the post-apartheid state of the nation
play, they are also engaged with realities in Zimbabwe, the Congo
and contemporary Europe. Higginson's experience of growing up in
wartorn Zimbabwe and apartheid South Africa have given him a
deeprooted and potent angle from which to dramatize a dialogue
between Europe and Africa. As British director Jeremy Herrin has
noted in his Foreword: `The pairing of delicate psychology and
considered plot allow the plays to move beyond the realism of their
settings into a bespoke theatrical landscape, a place where the
contradictions and messiness of contemporary life hold themselves
up for inspection.'
