Upstream Theater's Blood Knot
Upstream Theater is pleased to present Athol Fugards revolutionary Blood Knot, to be presented in the new Kranzberg Arts Center located in the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Building in Grand Center. (501 N. Grand at the corner of Grand & Olive). Directed by Philip Boehm. Starring J. Samuel Davis* and John Pierson.* Set design by Scott Neale. Costumes by Michele Siler. Lighting by John Armstrong.
The play runs for three weekends, Thursdays through Sundays through November 9, at 8 PM except for Sundays at 7 PM.
Blood Knot shows two brothers, one so light-skinned he can pass for white, the other unmistakably black, as they struggle with themselves, each other, and their dreams and fears against the backdrop of apartheid South Africa. A gripping play that moves us to think about race and the ties that divide as well as bind.
