The Last supper : Pinto Ferreira
Set between the two World Wars, The Last Supper tells the story of a tragically abused boy’s ironic, yet spectacular triumph over the cold shoulder of an unsympathetic world.
Ignatius’ flamboyant performances became the opium of the Karoo people. He also became the unpremeditated catalyst in the capsizing of their previously unwavering unity. His grandiose theatre persona was adored by most, but as a man he was abhorred and as a person he remained a menacing and obscure outsider. All that Ignatius ever wanted was to be woven into the tapestry of humankind. He wanted so little. He wanted to be loved. He wanted to feel significant.
