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.


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.


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
