Description : Castles in the Air is an attempt to open discussions on some often overlooked issues which affect education, particularly in rural and township government schools. In order to make it a truly South African drama, I have drawn from oral tradition by including songs and poems which play an integral part in traditional storytelling. There are many folksongs which were included in earlier versions, but I decided to remove them in the final version because I did not intend to write a musical. There are also some praise poems that I composed for the main character and his father. I studied oral tradition, and I am confident that the praise poems I composed have all the qualities of the real praise poems, and because I could not compose them in English, I, therefore, wrote them in isiZulu with translations in the glossary at the end.
