In an old house in a small country town three women gather in the presence of a stinkwood table and their powerful memories of the man they have just buried. In Sorrows and Rejoicings, Athol Fugard turns once more to his beloved Karoo and to the themes of exile and the importance of place that have permeated so many of his plays. Anthony Akerman’s accessible introduction situates the play in the context of the body of Fugard’s work.
