This tense confrontation recounts the black, African psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela’s gripping interrogations of Apartheid-era torturer and assassin Eugene de Kock, known by many as “Prime Evil.”
Adapted for the stage by Nicholas Wright from Gobodo-Madikizela’s best-selling 2003 book, this taut cross-examination is “a scorching look at Apartheid guilt” (The Guardian) in a deeply wounded South Africa, and the pained negotiations between past and future in a country aching to move on.
