Boesman and Lena is a small-cast play by South African playwright Athol Fugard , set in the Swartkops mudflats outside of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape , [1] that shows the effect of apartheid on a few individuals, featuring as characters a " Coloured " man and woman walking from one shanty town to another. In common with much of Fugard's other work, the play focuses on non-white characters and includes an element of social protest. Boesman and Lena was inspired by an incident in when Fugard was driving down a rural road in South Africa. He noticed an old lady walking along the road in the boiling-hot sun, miles from anywhere, and offered her a lift. She was overcome and cried with gratitude. She told him that her husband had just died and she was walking to another farm.
