New South African play premieres in Australia
Solomon and Marion by Lara Foot
Best New South African Play
Fleur Du Cap Award (2011)
This delicate and intimate South African drama heralds another Australian debut of exceptional new international writing.
Solomon and Marion is the story of two injured souls searching for redemption in the fragile, post-apartheid South Africa. Marion has watched her life drain away. Children and husband gone, she ekes out an existence in a country utterly transformed. But it’s the only home she has. As the new South Africa prepares for the World Cup finals, old divisions and suspicions seem as deep as ever, and the intruder she has been expecting, dreading and needing, arrives. Can true reconciliation turn darkness into hope?
Tickets start at just $33. For more information visit the MTC website. (link: http://www.mtc.com.au/tickets/
