Plays by Tsepo wa Mamatu, Tau Maserumule, Lesego Rampolokeng and Allan Kolski Horwitz. The post Apartheid tide celebrates our freedom from racist domination and humiliation and from the various ‘gevaars’ (paranoid fears) that fueled and supported it. But the tide is also increasingly one of corruption, inefficiency, greed and abuse of power expressed in economic policies that deny millions the opportunity to transcend poverty.

The four plays in this collection all touch on aspects of the hopes that once imbued us; and in so doing render the tragic nature of the disenchantment that now pervades our society. An essay on a key symbol of our times rounds them off, giving a more direct depiction and explanation for our degeneration and its sources. In ‘Against the Tide’ South African theatre once again, in its different guises with all its contending voices, locks horns with the intersections of the public and the private and defies notions of bland entertainment and superficial diversion.
