This moving and powerful story of an enduring love between two families—one black, one white—is told through the eyes of a six-year-old girl. Winner of the 2001 Obie Award for Best Play, The Syringa Tree chronicles two families straining against the chains of apartheid. Will love conquer fear? Two versatile actresses bring twenty-four characters to life, transporting us to South Africa from 1963 through the present. Join us for this moving tale beautifully brought to life by CRT.
