He produced and directed some of the best plays ever to be seen in this country. The Flag is Flying is an engrossing personal history of the South African theatre by the "whole theatre man", filled with notable and perceptive anecdotes and sympathetic, sharp and convincing pen-portraits of theatre personalities. … The passion Schach brought to his work in theatre permeates his recollections of the period and events he experienced first-hand.
