Based on a true story, Athol Fugard’s newest play is the culmination of a career spent mining the depths and complications of the human heart.

Roelf Visagie, a train driver, searches among the amangcwaba – the unnamed ones – for the final, unmarked resting place of a young woman and child he unintentionally killed.  As he wanders the graveyards of Port Elizabeth, he encounters a mysterious grave digger who guides him towards a tenuous and troubling understanding.

Running Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes (no intermission)
