Athol Fugard returns to South Africa to open theatre


One of apartheid's fiercest critics, playwright and director Athol Fugard, has returned to South Africa for the first time in 14 years to open a theatre named after him.

The honour has prompted Fugard to come out of retirement to direct a new play, which will premiere in his theatre in March.

Karen Allen reports from Cape Town.
