Playland is a powerful allegory about the situation in South Africa.

The confrontation between the protagonists is set in a travelling amusement park encamped on the outskirts of a town in Fugard's beloved Karoo. New Year's Eve 1989: the meeting of a young white returnee from the border and a black night-watchman leads to a situation in which they work through their differences and a shared nightmare towards reconciliation and the hope of peace.
