Set in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 1963, the play reunites Piet and Gladys, a white South African couple with their friend, Steve, a black man. The trio met years earlier as anti-apartheid activists and their reunion explores the tension, suspicion and fear of their time together and the havoc it wreaked on their relationships with each other and their country. The aloes plant symbolizes the ability of each of them to persevere through the drought of injustice and misunderstanding.
