The Playsof Miracle& Wonder
Ipi Zombi? / iMumbo Jumbo / The Prophet
Brett Bailey
From a truly groundbreakingvoice in African theater, thesethree plays have disturbed andtransported audiences in SouthAfrica and abroad with theirdepictions of some uncomfortable episodes in South African his-tory. From witch hunts in Kokstad and the saga of King Hintsa’sskull to the prophecies of Nongqawuse and the ensuing cattle-killing crisis, these plays touch on shared neuroses and fears,blending the tragic and transcendent with the farcical. Withaccompanying essays and working notes, the playwright givesbackground and insight into each of the productions and out-lines his own artistic development and vision. This richlydesigned book re-creates something of the funky energy, haunt-ing magic, and colorful imagery of the plays themselves.
