"Albert Wertheim's study of Fugard's plays is both extremely insightful and beautifully written... This book is aimed not only at teachers, students, scholars, and performers of Fugard but also at the person who simply loves going to see a Fugard play at the theatre." —Nancy Topping Bazin, Eminent Scholar and Professor Emerita, Old Dominion University Athol Fugard is considered one of the most brilliant, powerful, and theatrically astute of modern dramatists. The energy and poignancy of his work have their origins in the institutionalized racism of his native South Africa, and more recently in the issues facing a new South Africa after apartheid. Albert Wertheim analyzes the form and content of Fugard's dramas, showing that they are more than a dramatic chronicle of South African life and racial problems. Beginning with the specifics of his homeland, Fugard's plays reach out to engage more far-reaching issues of human relationships, race and racism, and the power of art to evoke change. The Dramatic Art of Athol Fugard demonstrates how Fugard's plays enable us to see that what is performed on stage can also be performed in society and in our lives; how, inverting Shakespeare, Athol Fugard makes his stage the world.
Dance and literary studies have traditionally been at odds: dancers and dance critics have understood academic analysis to be overly invested in the mind at the expense of body signification; literary critics and theorists have seen dance studies as anti-theoretical, even anti-intellectual.
"A thought-provoking, elegant, and engrossing new play by Athol Fugard."-The Hollywood Reporter "A rare playwright, who could be a primary candidate for either the Nobel Prize in Literature or the Nobel Peace Prize."-The New Yorker "Athol Fugard can say more with a single line than most playwrights convey in an entire script. One phrase from his new play, 'He's dying of unimportance,' relates to an offstage character, but it also strikingly sums up the slow, painful decline of its fading actor protagonist. More than that, it dramatizes the fear of all people who no longer feel admired, needed, or wanted."-Variety This new play about life and art by renowned playwright Athol Fugard is based on his early friendship with actor Andrew Huegonit, considered the finest classical actor of their native South Africa. Taking place mostly in dressing rooms over a five-year period between 1956 and 1961, it is the story of the one great artist's exit from the stage just as another was beginning his career in the theater. Exits and Entrances is the 13th Fugard title published by Theatre Communications Group since 1985, with over 93,000 copies of his work sold to date. Athol Fugard has been working in the theater as a playwright, director, and actor since the mid-1950s in South Africa, England, and the United States. His major works for the stage include Blood Knot, Master Harold . . . and the boys, My Children! My Africa!, A Lesson From Aloes, The Road to Mecca, Valley Song, and The Captain's Tiger. He has been widely produced in South Africa, London, Broadway, off-Broadway, and regional theaters in the United States.
