Playland online

Ujima Company present Playland from 29-21 Jan 2021.  Gerald Ramsey plays Martinus and Ben Caldwell plays Gideon.  The director is Phil Knoezer.

"1989, New Year’s Eve. A traveling amusement park. Two strangers meet in the dead of night in the heart of rural South Africa. With the country in the grips of the brutal apartheid regime, Playland promises an evening of thrills and laughter that never materializes.

This is a play about guilt, self-loathing, and the elusive nature of absolution in a racially divided world. Martinus Zoeloe, a black South African, the amusement park's night-watchman meets Gideon La Roux, a white Afrikaner and ex-serviceman who comes along looking for a fun night out. They find themselves face to face and their encounter is charged with history and danger."
