You can see the question South African playwright Dirk de Villiers is asking in this play: are the ties of flesh and blood more powerful than racial conditioning? It's 1970, apartheid is at its height and white South Africans Kay and Philip Keebler have just hired a black girl. Christine, from the convent as their maid. Kay is peremptory and bossy with her, while Philip is kinder, something that is later badly misinterpreted by both Christine and Kay's ghastly cousin Myra. Their liberal teenage daughter Sally, meanwhile, who has a white boyfriend of possible black extraction, can't understand her parents' politics and just wants to be Christine's friend. De Villiers frames the action within the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that took place some 30 years later as Philip comes seeking atonement for a crime, the ambiguous nature of which only emerges during the course of the play.
