THE BLOOD KNOT (in rep with A HUMAN BEING DIED THAT NIGHT)
By Athol Fugard
Directed by Joy Zinoman
A parable of two brothers who share a one-room shack near Port Elizabeth, South Africa: Zachariah is dark-skinned and Morris, light-skinned. They share the same mother but find their differences lead them to a common bond as brothers and men. Saving to buy a farm where they may retire Morris is the “slave”, cooking and cleaning while Zach earns money for them both. When Morrie joins a lonely hearts club on his brother’s behalf, they find themselves awaiting the visit of a White woman who will never arrive.
