Will an ambitious engineer compromise his heritage in the name of development and wealth? Will a struggle comrade whose life has not improved let him do so? Sibusiso Mamba’s thought-provoking play explores the energy and optimism of progress at all costs as it interacts with frustration at continuing poverty. The action takes place in a gritty tunnel being built for the Gautrain, as well as a more dreamlike space. Sifiso and Vavi are forced to confront their pasts and the way their attitudes will affect their own futures, as well as the future of South Africa. This edition includes: an introduction by the playwright, vocabulary help on the page, exam-style questions for learners, and informative notes on the play’s contextual background.
