Drama

This is the moving story of an old man's love for his dutiful grandchild. Buks' Jonkers is a poor yet dignified war veteran who is devoted to his vegetable furrows in a remote South African province. He is anxious to shield his dreamy, restless sixteen year old granddaughter from temptations beyond the valley. She is equally anxious to be a singer in faraway Johannesburg. Her self made songs brim with the longings of youth.

"[The] latest in the awesome line of Athol Fugard's plays...is a work of delicacy and lyricism...that is charming."- The London Sunday Times

"Enthralling [and] remarkable in the beauty of its language; remarkable in its espousal of clear cut values; remarkable in its emotional impact...It is among the playwrights's finest works."- Star Tonight

"Eloquent and visionary...It glows with a triumphant human spirit."" - Variety
