About This Book
This play about a young white boy and two African servants is at once a compelling drama of South African apartheid and a universal coming-of-age story.  Originally produced in 1982, it is now an acknowledged classic of the stage, whose themes of injustice, racism, friendship, and reconciliation traverse borders and time.
