Bizarre, surreal and comic, this play is about a racial murder in South Africa and its subsequent cover up by the press and the police. Mabel's husband is away so she takes and then shoots a Black lover. Repercussions include pregnancy for two local girls because of the hilarious police attempts to dispose of the body. A dead scientist who claims to have been an ant organizes a miraculous cure for the unwanted pregnancies.
