Amakhosi Theatre's three-man play is set in Zimbabwe-Rhodesia in 1980, just as power is changing hands. One white and two black men dramatise the upheavals in power, as blacks become free to exploit not just whites but other blacks. This is unashamedly didactic, but despite convincingly violent scenes, the performances are disappointing.
