    Excellent and touching two actor play

    Dr John Kani's script was perfectly targeted to an audience familiar with Shakespeare and sympathetic to anti-apartheid views. I think he revealed the humanity of both characters, the ingrained habits, and hard to eliminate cultural practices. It was sensitively performed. There's always a danger when using the words of Shakespeare or any other well-known writer. The audience starts expecting and predicting what will happen, then they are sorely disappointed. I found only two places where the characters stated the obvious, and I was impressed by the more original uses of Shakespeare's text. I could listen to Kunene speak his native language all day long!
