Set in a South African traveling amusement park on New Year’s Eve, Athol Fugard’s Playland explores the possibilities for blacks and whites to find understanding in a racially divided world. A volatile dialogue begins when two men―a former soldier and a night watchman―delve into their sordid pasts. A Steppenwolf Theatre Company co-production.
Original music by Richard Woodbury.
