The Plum Tree
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Jan Groenewald takes us on a harrowing journey through a childhood experience of sexual violation to victory and riches. He relives his memories in his own theatrical creation. From the distance that age brings, he recreates his world as a young boy who intertwines fantasy with reality. The text reaches far beyond the childhood experience of abuse. In the world of a young boy, it becomes a tense battle between good and evil, and a story of sweet revenge. In Jans play, good prevails. The ultimate victory against the evil of child abuse is his.
