Eighteen years after the end of apartheid, the white daughter of a landowner and the black son of her father’s servant wage love and war in the kitchen of a desolated South African farmstead. The tensions and traumas of contemporary South Africa are lived before your eyes. Through Farber’s vision, August Strindberg’s classic story of class and gender in conflict comes to startling new life. (
