This play at the Fugard is based on the research, writings and interviews of South African psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizla with the notorious Eugene de Kock, the police interrogator and commander of the brutal C1 counter-insurgency unit of the South African police during apartheid.
He admitted many of his crimes and assassinations when the regime fell, was convicted of over 80 charges of murder, assault, kidnapping, fraud and crimes against humanity and was sentenced to 212 years in prison in 1996.
In the play the interviews are combined with the stories of some of the victims Gobodo-Madikizela met when she was serving on South African’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
The play opens in London in May.
