Signature Theatre Company present Blood Knot, directed by Fugard.  The actors are Colman Domingo (Zachariah) and Scott Shepherd (Morris).

"Between patchwork walls in a one-room shack, two biracial South African brothers grapple with crippling poverty and lonely isolation. Morris, the punctilious force that keeps their room tidy, is light-skinned enough to pass for white, but dark-skinned Zach feels imprisoned by his job at a whites-only park. When they find themselves on some dangerous new ground, the brothers must come face to face with the blood knot between them."

Set design is by Christopher H. Barreca, costume design by Susan Hilferty. lighting by Stephen Strawbridge, sound by Brett Jarvis.  The dialect coach is Barbara Rubin, props by Sarah Bird, production stage manager is Pamela Salling and assistant stage manager is Maggie Swing.
