This is a collection of interviews with 15 South African theatre practitioners who have made their mark on the development of anti-apartheid theatre. The interviews, some of which are also personal testimonies, throw new light on the ways in which theatre was able to get past the censors and through the security meshes of the special Branch, and how it helped conscientise the township youth during the final phase of the struggle. Interviews were conducted with, amongst others, Zakes Mda, Ronnie Govender, John Kani and Gibson Kente.
