Blind Voices is a collection of three radio plays – “Soldier Boy,” “Miss Dolly” and “Womb Tide”. The main play, “Soldier Boy” is about the effect of the Total Onslaught wars fought by white South Africa and was broadcast by the BBC in 2003. A CD recording of that production is attached to the book. “Miss Dolly” won a Merit Award in the 1995 BBC World Playwriting Competition. In 200 the script was a finalist in the Noupoort Reward for Playwriting, while “Womb Tide” has never been produced.
