For a decade the Johannesburg's Market Theatre has been the single most exciting, and provocative, venue for experimental drama, a unigue meeting place of talents, styles and subjects. This cross-section of its plays celebrates that energy and originality. Included are: This is for Keeps: An award-winning two-hander about marital violence. Pula: The mime and musical drama, which shuffles roles to talk of a community with plaintive force and unforgettable spectacle. Shades of Brown: The long-running confrontation play between a folk psychiatrist and a policeman. Hey, Listen: Three witheringly satirical and compassionate monologues on city life. Appassionata: The experiemental recital-play by Pieter-Dirk Uys, written for a pianist-actress. National Madness: an ensemble piece by James Whyle that talks of young people's problems in South Africa today.
