"Dramatic, moving...see it"

"Perhaps the most important play I’ve written"
Athol Fugard, 2010
An emotionally disturbed train driver wanders into the graveyard of a desolate squatter camp on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth. There he meets Simon Hanabe, a gravedigger, who buries the nameless dead. The train driver is trying to find the grave of a nameless woman and child.
This powerful and haunting new play by Athol Fugard is dedicated to Pumla Lolwana and her three children - Lindani, Andile and Sesanda - who died on the railway tracks between Philippi and Nyanga on The Cape Flats on Friday December 8th 2000
