Some people don’t know anything about Bram Fischer except that he has a road named after him. That’s a travesty. Hopefully the brilliant play The Bram Fischer Waltz will change it. By LESLEY STONES. While present day South Africa is unavoidably steeped in history, Fischer is a name that has slid to the periphery. One of the lesser-celebrated anti-Apartheid heroes. That was certainly true for me, until I did some quick swotting up before seeing The Bram Fischer Waltz at the Market Theatre. What a fascinating man! What a tragic life. What courageous and ultimately self-destructive deeds. And...
