About the play

A rural South African town at the height of the troubles. A black schoolteacher forges a bond of affection and respect between a clever young black pupil at his township’s boys’ school, and a bright middle-class teenager at the white girls’ school as he trains them together for a national school quiz contest. The bond is burned away in the flames of inter-racial violence, but the resilience of tolerance and friendship live on.
