Iain Fisher:
The Island by Athol Fugard, John Kani and Winston Ntshona performed by the Ensemble Theatre, Ohio.  Performances are at The Performing Arts Center at Notre Dame College from 27 Oct- 12 Nov 2023.

The director is  Sarah May and the actors are Robert Williams (John) and Nnamdi Okpala (Winston).

"John and Winston are black political prisoners in South Africa, spending their days at hard labor and their evenings rehearsing Sophocles' Antigone. Though the two men are deeply bonded to one another, their friendship is tested when John discovers that his most recent appeal was successful, while Winston is still looking at years of brutal incarceration ahead. A profile on the depth of human resilience in the face of unspeakable injustice and racism"
