Blood Knot


It’s been a year since Morrie returned to Port Elizabeth to live with his brother Zach. They share childhood memories of their mother, yet have wildly contrasting life experiences due to their different fathers. Morrie wants to take them away from their township shack, buy a small farm and make a new life. To take their minds off the struggle, they decide Zach needs a pen pal. But who should it be? An innocent game can quickly go wrong... As things get complicated, the stakes rise: can they free themselves from the enduring prejudices provoked by the different shades of their skin? We’re tied together. It’s what they call the blood knot . . . the bond between brothers. A vital part of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, playwright Athol Fugard’s prolific career spans seven decades. His work includes The Island, The Road to Mecca and “Master Harold”… and the Boys. “My real territory as a dramatist is the world of secrets with their powerful effect on human behaviour and the trauma of their revelation.” Athol Fugard Matthew Xia won the Genesis Future Director award with his production of Fugard’s Sizwe Banzi is Dead at the Young Vic, where he also directed Blue/Orange. “Matthew Xia’s stylishly stark, brilliantly acted production is extraordinary.” The Times on Sizwe Banzi is Dead Estimated running time 2 hours 30 minutes, including an interval Members' Event For Gold and Ruby Members, and Patrons Pre-show drinks reception with Artistic Director Paul Miller on Tues 26 March at 6:30pm Email Emma or call 020 8940 3633 to book your places
