Dimetos is one of what Fugard himself called his "abberant" plays. It is one of the three that is not set in South Africa, or deals with its politics. Instead it is a lyrical and inexorable tragedy (set, possibly, in modern Greece), that examines the nature of choice a man has over his own self-control, and asks how a person is meant to carry on in the face of awful events for which they are solely responsible, events that then enfold, with tragic consequences as sure as the rise and fall of the tides that flow throughout this beautifully metaphorical play.
