Val­ley Song

Vancouver Magazine - - City -

Set in his na­tive South Africa, this work from pro­lific play­wright and nov­el­ist Athol Fu­gard was first staged in 1995. (The New

York Times de­clared it “an in­stant clas­sic.”) Si­mul­ta­ne­ously a study of the generation gap and of Fu­gard’s then-rapidly evolv­ing home­land, it de­picts an el­derly farmer grap­pling with his grand­daugh­ter’s dreams of be­com­ing a singing star in Jo­han­nes­burg. Paci c The­atre, March 24 to April 8
