Acts of Witness: Blood Knot 

When: March 4-20 2012
Price: $10-18

The second production in this month of rotating repertory, Athol Fugard's 1961 drama Blood Knot, is "set as a foundational, allegorical warning to us all," Megel notes. In it, two half-brothers, only one of whom is able to pass as white in apartheid South Africa, try to negotiate the racism and inequity that splits their family. They share the dream of buying a small farm to escape the degradation in their everyday lives, but what divides them threatens any possible life together.

"Hopefully, works like Blood Knot can raise the level at which this discourse on racism and inequity can happen," says Megel. Adding to the stakes for this production, playwright Athol Fugard will attend the final production on March 20, after having directed the current New York revival of the same work.

Blood Knot plays Sunday and Monday at 7:30 p.m., and continues in rotating repertory with Poetic Portraits of a Revolution through March 20. —Byron Woods
