play we are going to study is Valley Song by Athol Fugard.
The most significant historical event surrounding the creation of Valley Song
was the dismantling of Apartheid and South Africa’s rebirth as a free
society just as the play was being produced.
So, before we begin our study of this South African play, it is crucial that we
get an insight into how Apartheid affected the lives of ordinary South
Africans, including Athol Fugard.
