About this show

One of the true contemporary masters of the stage, South African playwright Athol Fugard returns to the McCarter! Sorrows and Rejoicings explores the legacy of Apartheid on two women--one white, the other black--who on the surface seem to have little in common except their love of one man, a white poet attached to Karoo land and the peoples of his birth. The drama moves fluidly between the past and present, reliving his despondent years in exile and his eventual return to a new South Africa. With lyrical grave, Fugard once again demonstates the human struggle to transcend the treacherous injustices of history.
