The latest work from South African playwright Athol Fugard, Exits and Entrances, is perhaps his most autobiographical work so far. It features two characters: a young playwright whose star is on the rise, and an older actor whose career is waning. The play premieres at a tiny theater in Los Angeles. Iris Mann reports.
