The Captain's Tiger: A Memoir for the Stage
In the latest of his post-apartheid plays - The Captain's Tiger: A Memoir for the Stage - Athol Fugard sets out as a young seafarer and writer to begin The Great Novel - the exciting tales of his mother, a young Afrikaner, and her escape from small-town life. But what he discovers on his travels is that the secret to great writing comes from the desperate need to tell the truth, and in turn he finds his voice as an author.
