A Human Being Died That Night
The Fugard Theatre and Eric Abraham
By Nicholas Wright, based on the book by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela
Directed by Jonathan Munby

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: History (South Africa), Theater 

1997, Pretoria Central Prison, South Africa. A black woman prepares to enter the prison cell of the apartheid regime’s most notorious figure, a white political assassin known by South Africans as Prime Evil. Psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela (Olivier Award winner Noma Dumezweni), a member of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, is interviewing Eugene de Kock (Matthew Marsh) as he serves two life sentences for crimes against humanity, murder, assault, kidnapping, fraud, and a host of other offenses.

In Nicholas Wright’s play, based on Gobodo-Madikizela’s bestselling 2003 book, the two negotiate a fraught emotional space. In a riveting interrogation that goes from dispassionate to deeply intimate, she attempts to discern man from government-sanctioned monster, overcoming her disgust and finding the human within.

Each workshop includes a high-definition recorded selection of a BAM mainstage production, an online study guide resource that includes preparatory information and activities for teachers and students, and an engaging virtual workshop facilitated live by a BAM Teaching Artist streamed directly to your classroom.

Leadership support for virtual programming provided by the Altman Foundation.
