Make Like Slaves
Make Like Slaves is a play by Richard Rive (1930-1989). It is a one-act play with which he won the 1972 BBC African Theatre Competition. The action of the play subtly reveals the prejudices and received attitudes of a seemingly liberal white woman directing a play with black actors.
