The text

Set in England’s colonial outposts in South Africa during the 19th century, the plays Fever, (a revised version of A Worm in the Bud) and Concealment both feature sisters forced by a deeply conservative, patriarchal society to resist the powerful call of their vivid surroundings and to stifle the demands of their own rich, feminine sexuality.

Published in the series Oberon Modern Playwrights by Oberon Books in 2007.

Also available in a Kindle edition.
