Shreds of Tenderness By John Ruganda

Shreds of Tenderness is a heart-rending, masterfully crafted play which is replete with shocking revelations and reversals.

Not Long ago, a tyrant took over the reins of Government and unleashed terror throughout the Motherland. Wak fled.

Shreds of Tenderness

Throughout the first half of the play, we are led to believe that Odie, Waks brother, is the innocent homeboy with the right to speak for those who remained to fight for the Motherland. Conversely, Wak is depicted as a pest of the highest order who comes home from a comfortable exile to sponge on the hard-earned harvest of those who stayed, fought and brought a semblance of peace to the nation.

Some things are not what they seem to be, or are they?

Wak unexpectedly comes back home. What follows is one of the most brilliant creations of any drama.
