In the smouldering kitchen of a remote South African farmhouse, 23 years after apartheid, a single night of brutality and tenderness unfolds between a black farm labourer and his white master's daughter. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are laid bare as the couple's deadly attraction spirals out of control and they battle over power, sexuality, memory, mothers and land. Winner of more than 20 prestigious theatre awards, this Yael Farber sensation returns to the Assembly stage. ***** (New York Times). ***** (Guardian). ***** (Telegraph). ***** (Times). Winner of the 2012 Scotsman Fringe First Award.
