Kate Dobbs Arial's review in CVNC

The place: Robben Island, South Africa's notorious apartheid-era prison, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years. In Fugard's modern classic, two political prisoners, rehearsing a performance of Antigone in their cramped cell, must balance personal loyalties against their struggle to survive. The Island celebrates the strength of friendship and the power of the human spirit.
