The Syringa Tree
by Unity Theatre
Nov. 02 - Nov. 12, 2017
Winner of the 2001 Obie Award for Best Play, The Syringa Tree is a personal story of an abiding love between two families—one black, one white—and the two children that are born into their shared household in early 1960s South Africa. With both humor and palpable fear, six-year-old Elizabeth Grace tries to make sense of the chaos, magic and darkness of Africa. At first seen through the eyes of a child, the story of these families’ destinies spans four generations, from early apartheid to the present-day free South Africa.
