Synopsis: "Set in the South Africa of 1984 - the fourth decade of apartheid, the play tells the story of Thami, a young and brilliant black man as two opposing forces struggle for his soul. His teacher insists that education, even the inferior 'Bantu' education he is forced to teach, is the way to liberation. But Thami has begun to listen to angrier voices..."
