A comedy by Fiona Coyne

Original text

Set in the world of Kenya during the "White Mischief" days, it is a wry one-woman comedy about a white woman's angst and pretensions in Africa - a continent she both loves and fears. It was Coyne's first play.

Published in 2+2 Plays (compiled by Roy Sergeant) by comPress, 2000.
