Review of 'Sorrows and Rejoicings' by Athol Fugard, Tricycle Theatre, London
Athol Fugard's 'Sorrows and Rejoicings' is an exploration of the life of a dissident poet.
Dawid, an anti-apartheid Afrikaaner intellectual, has died. His widow, Allison, and his black house servant, Marta, begin a compelling retrospective of his life. Allison, who returns to Karoo village for the funeral, may own the house, but she is unmistakably a stranger in what is Marta's home.
