The Last Trek
The Last Trek conceived by Clare Stopford and workshopped by the company. A tale set in the first half of the 21st century in the last months of a many year war in South Africa which has impoverished the land and its people. This is the story of individuals who have opted out of the battle, who decide to take destiny in their own hands and move from the poverty of city life to a new beginning on the land; it is a metaphor for the rebirth of a nation.
