Green Man Flashing has been published by Robin Malan's Junkets Press as a stand-alone text and is available via info@mikevangraan.co.za. This has happened in record time, and I am looking forward to Junkets Press publishing Iago's Last Dance in a couple of months' time.

I have been commissioned by Aardklop National Arts Festival to create a new play for this year's Festival. Aardklop commissioned four writers to celebrate their tenth anniversary a few years ago, and my play Die Generaal, was one of them. This new commission - provisionally titled Martin's Dream - will be my new work produced this year.

I am planning to complete my MA in Drama this year which comprises a dissertation with the lengthy title A qualitative and quantitative study of the theme of HIV/AIDS in post-apartheid, mainstream theatre as a premise for determining the primary influences and constraints on, and the motivations for, contemporary theatre-makers in South Africa. 25% of the MA is allocated to the production of a new play, with Iago's Last Dance, my trilogy inspired by the HIV/AIDS pandemic and staged at last year's National Arts Festival, having fulfilled this requirement.
