Fanta Orange

Front Cover
Oberon Books, Jun 21, 2012 - Drama - 88 pages

Inspired by a real-life Amnesty International report, Fanta Orange is a colourful and unexpected tale that gets under the skin of modern Africa. Regina is a Kenyan house servant. Roger is her white farmer boss. The two share a curious bond. Enter Ronnie, a privileged young English girl whom Roger discovers holed up in the bush, studying the bizarre practice of dirt-eating among local tribes. Soon both women are pregnant and a saga unfolds which turns every racial and sexual preconception on its head.

‘This is great theatre. Completely convincing... the tense plot slowly unfurling in a way that disturbs and satisfies in equal measure. The pace is fast and the handling of complex ideas is deft and impressive. Rich, enjoyable and powerful writing.’ What'sOnStage

‘Woodcock's writing is daring, assured and often stingingly funny. Splendidly provocative stuff.’ Time Out
