Boesman and Lena
by Athol Fugard
Full Length Play, Drama / 2m, 1f
Two Black scavengers emerge from the underbrush loaded with their total possessions: the makings of a shack and a battery of pots and pans, but nothing to cook in them.
"The play is carefully structured as a dance, first with Lena's solo, then with a pas de deux, then with Boesman's verbal self expression. An old man stumbles on the two Hottentots, and becomes the physical catalyst of their relationship, precipitating a crisis and a credible resolution." - The Hollywood Reporter
