The play "A Human Being Died that Night" by Nicholas Wright, adapted from the book by Dr. Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela
Synopsis: Eugene de Kock was a paid white political assassin nick-named "Prime Evil" for his crimes against anti-apartheid activists. While serving his two life sentences, black psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela went to interview him hoping to seek humanity and forgiveness within the government-sanctioned monster. The thought-provoking interrogation moves from clinical to intimate in a prison cell where fear and compassion coexist. (Samuel French).
