Blood Knot by Athol Fugard


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.

Athol Fugard’s revolutionary breakthrough play is a searing indictment of apartheid and one of his most celebrated works.
