About this show

Eugene de Kock, known as "Prime Evil," is a white policeman serving two life sentences plus 212 years for the torture and murder of anti-apartheid activists. His interrogator, a black female psychologist who served on South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, has returned to prison on a personal mission to discern man from state-sanctioned monster. In a harrowing exchange, prisoner and interrogator negotiate a space where fear and compassion co-exist. Wright's unflinching 80-minute script — distilled from Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela's best-selling book — is a deeply human story about accountability, remorse, and the complex nature of forgiveness.
