Cundill’s finely nuanced observations of the relationship between a dying mother and her ambitious developer son showed the audience why he was one of South Africa’s premier writers before migrating to Australia in 1987. Cundill illustrates how the one-act form, kept thematically simple and uncluttered, can pack a punch. The humour, well-placed and sparsely rendered, infused an otherwise dark topic with the wit and wisdom of a very human experience.

The purchase of a single script infers no Copying or Performance rights. (Scripts and music can’t be copied for readings, auditions or rehearsals without purchasing the Copying Fee.) The fee gives you the right to copy the script and musical scores that you have purchased as many times as you need for these performances.
To stage a performance, you must announce your performance dates to Maverick Musicals and state whether you are or are not charging for tickets. This will dictate what kind of royalty fee you will be invoiced for.
Copying Fees (for rehearsal materials) and a Performance License must be obtained before your production can take place. Our streamlined system means that a Performance License Application is activated when you order the Basic or Deluxe Package. (Please note that it is a breach of Copyright to copy scripts and music, or to perform musicals or plays without the Publisher’s permission.)
