de Wet: Plays One

Reza de Wet

Translated by Steven Stead
PaperBack (13 Jul 2000)
£16.99

Includes the plays Missing, Crossing and Miracle

The three plays in this volume are hauntingly beautiful pieces with simple fable-like characters who are touched by magical events. A circus has a mysterious significance in Missing (Mis) as a mother and daughter are visited by a blind policeman on  the nights it comes to town. In Crossing (Drif) a stormy night brings a hypnotist to the home of two sisters who live by a ford, two women who bury the bodies of fortune-seekers who fail to heed their warnings about the river when it is in flood. Miracle (Mirakel) centres on a theatrical troupe and again exemplifies the author’s earthiness, humour and child-like wonder.
