Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has published a new collection from Athol Fugard, entitled The Train Driver and Other Plays.

The New York premiere of The Train Driver, under the direction of Fugard, is currently performing at Signature Center. The two-person drama was inspired by the true story of a mother who with her three children committed suicide on the train tracks in Cape Town.

Also included in this collection are Coming Home, Fugard’s first work addressing AIDS in South Africa; Have You Seen Us?, his first play set in America, about a South African transplanted to San Diego, where the playwright currently resides; a selection from his Notebooks on his artistic process and an Afterword by Marianne McDonald.
