Public reading – Coast: Scenes from the trial of Dr Wouter Basson by Maggie Davey (7 December)

The trial for fraud, murder and conspiracy of Dr Wouter Basson concluded in 2002, with a verdict handed down from Justice W Hertzenberg of not guilty. This play takes scenes from that trial, and attempts to air some of the events and stories that both witnesses and Dr Basson testified to. The play does not seek to put Dr Basson ‘on trial’ again, but rather to hear and understand at least some of what the South African Defence Force and the South African government did in the name of South African citizens.
