Overview

“Tender and ruminative!”

The New York Times

“An intimate theatrical gem!”

Hollywood Reporter

“Thoughtful and poignant! Places the powerful symbol of a man’s human dignity in a modern-day context.”

Variety

“Fugard stamps indelible human faces on faraway reports of the world’s news.”

Newsday

 

  

Aging farm laborer Nukain has spent his life transforming the rocks at Revolver Creek into a vibrant garden of painted flowers. Now, the final unpainted rock, as well as his young companion Bokkie, has forced Nukain to confront his legacy as a painter, a person and a black man in 1980s South Africa. When the landowner’s wife arrives with demands about the painting, the profound rifts of a country hurtling toward the end of apartheid are laid bare.

Athol Fugard, Signature’s 2012 Playwright-in-Residence and winner of the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Tony Award, returns with a new play inspired by the life of outsider artist Nukain Mabusa.
