Mustapha Matura, West Indian Playwright and Writer, 1939-2019

"...the most perceptive and humane of Black dramatists writing in Britian." New Statesman

"What makes Mustapha Matura our finest dramatist of West Indian origin? A wry humour, warmth of feeling, a knack for observing human oddity and for embodying it in quirky, unpredictable dialogue, and the fundamental seriousness with which he writes of people who, like himself, have in some sense become severed from their roots. He ranges from the usually mischievous to the wickedly funny. "
Benedict Nightingale, The Times
