Playland by Athol Fugard

Very freaky name for an incredibly serious play. This takes place on the grounds of a South African amusement park called playland, and it’s a deadly serious story about a black man and a white man trying to come to terms with their murderous hate.

They are kind of crazy, both of them, and it comes out very slowly, in a building tension. The whole play is just the two men, with a voice over the loudspeaker of the amusement park being the only other part.

this playwright also wrote “the Road to mecca”, which I also like.
