I just got back from seeing a powerful, harrowing, and brilliantly acted play, Groundswell--you should see it, too, if you can. It's a political and psychological thriller set in the new South Africa, involving a black gardener who's the temporary manager of a seaside guesthouse; his unlikely friend, a former policeman of Afrikaner descent; and a white businessman of British descent who's spending the night in the guesthouse.
It closes Saturday, June 27. You can probably get discount tickets through TDF.
