Blood Knot

Performance Dates

This landmark classic from South Africa’s most acclaimed playwright, Athol Fugard, is a harrowing fable of two brothers bound by blood and separated by color. The light-skinned Morris and his darker-skinned brother Zachariah share a one-room shack in Port Elizabeth, where their childhood memories form a bond that runs deep. But when Zachariah’s pen-pal, a white woman, announces her intention to meet him in person, it is Morris who cloaks himself in the clothes and mannerisms he learned while “passing” in white society in order to pose as his brother. Helmed by Studio Theatre founding artistic director Joy Zinoman, The Blood Knot is the first installment in Mosaic's South Africa Rep.
