  • Description
  • Reviews
Includes the playscript of Workshop Negative by Cont Mhlanga.
This volume in the African Theatre series includes the familiar territory of South Africa and Zimbabwe but also countries which have received little previous attention, such as Angola and Namibia. The articles range from evaluations of single plays to accounts of play-making processes, theatre for development and the relationship between modern drama and indigenous performance.

"The fourth volume in the excellent African Theatre series which provides an invaluable resource for academics working in the area of African Theatre." LUCAS BULLETIN
"Kerr's selection is interesting and diverse, with a commendable (in my view) bias towards the social role of theatre. ... The series as a whole is to be recommended for its contribution to this field's somewhat patchy assortment of publications, and African Theatre: Southern Africa, in particular, for adding to our meagre knowledge of Angolan and Namibian theatre."
