The Pre-History of Moses P

 

Review


Veteran performer Erik de Waal weaves a passionate, profound and intimate performance animating characters ravaged by the atrocities of Apartheid. Afrikaans for Apartness—Apartheid illuminates segregation and is a cornerstone in de Waal’s tale as he masterfully portrays a story in which racial politics, and social injustice are introduced to the Afrikaans communities. Moses P (de Waal), a privileged white politician, realizes his privileged upbringing is in turmoil, as his mother grew up "coloured." The laws systematically introduced through Apartheid prohibit his father's mixed marriage, remove him from his neighborhood and forces him to forego what he might want in order to do what he believes is right. Erik de Waal’s masterful and engaging play introduces the audience to a sad, yet intimate portrayal of racial inequality that echoes especially strong amidst the political division in the modern political climate, with his characters asking you to “do the right thing.” Reviewed by Levi Gogerla.
