“The Island”A ten week course, reading and exploring the “ground-breaking” play by Athol Fugard, John Kani and Winston Ntshona.

 “The Island” was one of the most influential plays to come out of the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. Along with “Sizwe Bansi is dead”, it brought world-wide recognition to its authors, and the horrors of Apartheid to a British audience.

This ten week course at Blackburne House, hosted by the Workers’ Educational Association, explores the play’s many facets: as a work of literature but also as a political and cultural phenomenon.
