about

South African writer Craig Higginson’s powerful new play is a dark, witty and sexually-charged psychological drama told through the eyes of a beautiful English teacher and her French-Congolese pupil. A ‘state of the nation’ exploration of the tensions between the first and third worlds the play explores issues around language, power, identity, sex, past trauma, class, exile and refugees.

An exciting new co-production from the internationally-renowned Market Theatre from South Africa and two of the UK’s most prestigious theatre companies.

'This gripping two-hander is a highlight of the Traverse programme. Higginson packs a lot in under the seemingly innocuous guise of a young English woman giving language lessons to a French-Congolese student in contemporary Paris'- Fiona Mountford,Evening Standard

'Higginson is clearly gifted. He not only filters pressing concerns about race, prejudice and power through a highly charged two-hander, but he wraps it all up in a witty discourse about language itself.'- Daily Telegraph

'It is unusual and fascinating to see a play investigate the extent to which words can shape our thoughts and feelings as much as vice versa.'- Financial Times
