The Syringa Tree

OCT 16-NOV 9, 2014

by Pamela Gien
Directed by Steve Pacek
Honorary Producers:
  Carol & Tom Beam

Nelson Mandela and the people of South Africa showed the world that conquering institutionalized racism could be done. In The Syringa Tree, Elizabeth, a white South African, shares the story of her black caretaker and of generations of family straining against the chains of apartheid. Love conquers fear as two gifted actresses fill the stage with the people, music, and verdant countryside of South Africa from 1963 to present.

Theatre Horizon is a proud participant in the Barrymore Awards for Excellence in Theatre, a program of Theatre Philadelphia. This season, our production(s) of The Syringa Tree is Barrymore Recommended.
