THE CATALINA THEATRE: Athol Fugard’s Boesman and Lena is a story of two coloured people trapped in a struggle for freedom and dignity during apartheid. Designed primarily as a study aid to high school pupils, it runs until March 16. This production takes place over the course of a single evening and follows Boesman and Lena’s story as they journey across the mudflats of the Swartkops River near Port Elizabeth, carrying all their belongings. They have been uprooted from their home, which has been bulldozed by the white authorities to drive them and other black and coloured people in the segregated settlement further away from their white neighbours.
