Relatable and searingly intimate, Blood Knot asks us to dig beneath the surface of what makes us kin and what happens when we don’t like what we find there. 
Written by renowned South African playwright Athol Fugard, Blood Knot is about the relationship between two biracial half-brothers: dark-skinned  Zach and light-skinned Morris, who has recently returned home after passing as white for many years. The play follows the brothers as they grapple with crippling poverty and lonely isolation—living a strained existence in a one-room shack in apartheid South Africa. The brothers' desperation exposes the complex angles of their relationship in this powerful, revolutionary play. 

“...one of the best, and best-performed plays ever to be done Off Broadway.”

-The New Yorker
