THE PLAYS OF MIRACLE & WONDER Ipi Zombi? / iMumbo Jumbo / The Prophet

By Bailey, Brett

South Africa: Double Storey Books & Juta Academic. Very Good. 2003. First Edition. Softcover. 1919930205 . 2003 first edition. Double Storey Books, South Africa. Pages tight and clean other than approx. 4 pages have a small amount of underling/writing. Cover has light scuffing and light edgewear. Illustrated in colour. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 200 pages; From a truly groundbreaking voice in African theater, these three plays have disturbed and transported audiences in South Africa and abroad with their depictions of some uncomfortable episodes in South African history. From witch hunts in Kokstad and the saga of King Hintsa’s skull to the prophecies of Nongqawuse and the ensuing cattle-killing crisis, these plays touch on shared neuroses and fears, blending the tragic and transcendent with the farcical. With accompanying essays and working notes, the playwright gives background and insight into each of the productions and outlines his own artistic development and vision. This richly designed book re-creates something of the funky energy, haunting magic, and colorful imagery of the plays themselves. [597] .
