An Evening of Ian Fraser
By Ian Fraser
The Western World premiere of two dark comedies by award-winning South African playwright Ian Fraser. Fraser writes on the fringes of South African theater, encapsulating complex political issues into short and absurd, yet powerful, bits of stagecraft. Both plays were written and produced in the late 80s, during the State of Emergency, apartheid's last desperate peak.
