The play is set in pre-independence colonial Africa. An American journalist arrives at a mission hospital run by European settlers; in the nearby village, a young man breaks his travels in Europe and America to return for his father's funeral. Both find themselves together with families and neighbours, drawn into deepening crisis as the struggle for independence touches the lives of villagers and settlers alike. Les Blancs
is an epic drama about individuals caught in the maelstrom of change, facing painful choices in their struggle for freedom.
