Ritual for Dolls


Ritual for Dolls is a play set in an attic of an old English house during the Victorian period. It demonstrates the racist sentiments that the English “civilized” world felt toward the African “uncivilized” people.

It does not in any way condone racism but merely portrays the racist attitudes that were prevalent at the time. Ritual for Dolls deals with many intense and disturbing social issues. Racism is only one of them.
