In a Different Light

Jump to navigation Jump to search

In a Different Light is an English play by Reza de Wet (1952-2012)

The original text

Written in 1989, it is a play about the relationship between two sisters after the loss of their mother.

One of De Wet's only attempts at psychological realism, the play was not well received by critics and is one of the few texts by De Wet that have not been published.
