Boesman and Lena at Baxter Theatre
5–29 September (Golden Arrow Studio)
Written by Athol Fugard
Directed by James Ngcobo
With Quanita Adams, Elton Landrew, Charly Azade.
In this modern interpretation, director James Ngcobo has chosen to shift the dynamic and explore how pertinent it is in 2012. Boesman and Lena is a small-cast play, set in the Swartkops mudflats just outside Port Elizabeth. In essence it deals with two lonely weather-beaten squatters trapped in a struggle for freedom and dignity.
