Have read Barry Bermange's plays over and over and never can get enough of them, especially Oldenberg, which explores
the fear and racism beneath the calm surface of an ordinary middle-class British couple, I've been mugged twice by
black people and was almost killed the first time, so while I've learned to live with African Americans, I will
always fear that they'll stab me in the back and take all my money and leave me destitute for the rest of my life.
Bermange's work puts me in touch with my fears. He knows what he's talking about. Thanks.
