Blood Knot

By Athol Fugard

Directed by James L. Cady

Beginning Friday, October 21, 2022 the Vortex Theatre presents a live production of Athol Fugard's Blood Knot, directed by James L. Cady.

Blood Knot is a parable of two brothers who share a one-room shack near Port Elizabeth, South Africa: Zachariah is dark-skinned and Morris, light-skinned. Saving to buy a farm where they may retire, Morris does the cooking and cleaning while Zach earns money for them both. When Morris joins a lonely hearts club on his brother's behalf, they find themselves awaiting the visit of a White woman who will never arrive.
