The Syringa Tree
PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE
By PAMELA GIEN
Directed by WHIT MacLAUGHLIN
On the Arcadia Stage
January 20 - March 20, 2005

This powerful play tells the story of an abiding love between two families – one black, one white – in apartheid-era South Africa. A rhapsodic and moving portrait spanning more than four decades and four generations, this semi-autobiographical, 24-character play is an intimate journey of the heart based on the memories of its Obie Award-winning author Pamela Gien. Don't miss this one-woman tour-de-force featuring Catharine Slusar portraying all 24 roles.

Critical Acclaim–

"A superlative production... watching Slusar move seamlessly between the play's disparate roles is to see an actress at the peak of her craft."
