The Fugard Theatre and Eric Abraham
By Nicholas Wright, based on the book by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela
Directed by Jonathan Munby
Prime Evil is what South Africans call him: a paid white political assassin currently serving two life sentences for crimes committed in the name of the apartheid state. In Nicholas Wright’s play, based on the best-selling 2003 book by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela, a black female psychologist (Olivier Award winner Noma Dumezweni) enters Eugene de Kock’s (Matthew Marsh) prison cell to discern man from government-sanctioned monster. In a riveting interrogation that moves from dispassionate to deeply intimate, a remorseful de Kock and his interlocutor negotiate a fraught emotional space in which fear and compassion coexist.

Bryan Doerries, the founder of Theater of War—a project that presents theatrical readings to spur audience dialogue and engagement—facilitates a discussion of this season’s presentation of A Human Being Died That Night. Together with a panel of community members and the audience, Doerries explores the play’s themes of power, otherness, violence, and forgiveness in apartheid-era South Africa—and their resonance closer to home.
Please note: In order to attend, you must purchase a ticket for one of the two performances listed above. The discussion begins immediately after the performance.
