Zakes Mda has emerged as one of the most powerful South African writers of critical theatre in the past thirty years. He is an exemplar of H. I. E. Dhlomo's ideal African dramatist who "cannot delve into the past unless he has grasped the present ... to do this the African dramatist must be an artist before being a propagandist, a philosopher before a reformer, a psychologist before a patriot" (quoted in Barnett 1983: 228).
