In this second volume of plays Sol B River confirms the power and individuality of his voice within contemporary British drama. All five plays focus on the plight of the Black Diaspora. 48-98 is a multimedia stage drama which mixes documentary footage with domestic conflict to examine the lives of those who arrived in Britain on the The Windrush in 1948. The radio drama Walk Against Fear tells the story of James H. Meredith, the first African American to attend the University of Mississippi. In Making Waves, a radio play co-written with Gee Williams, a West Indian Pentecostal Minister is stationed in a rural Welsh parish, where he struggles to inspire his dispirited flock. The White Witch of Rose Hall is a new version of the story of Annie Palmer, plantation owner and suspected witch: this dramatic retelling revels in the dark atmosphere of the plantation setting. In Two Tracks and Text Me, a stray text message links a group of Friday-night revellers with the fate of a young girl desperate for help.
