The production brings together two very dynamic theatre luminaries when author and director Foot tackles her own two-hander with Suzman in the role of Marion. Suzman is an internationally-acclaimed and respected South African-born actress and director.
In Solomon and Marion two very different characters, an ageing and heartbroken English white woman and a young black man, from opposite spectrums of the South African context, each carrying narratives of significant loss, are thrown together by extraordinary circumstances.
Through delicate and careful story-telling, a transition is facilitated from a condition of darkness to hope. The characters come face to face with their own and each other's fears, culpability and longing, which gradually turn to empathy and ultimately to the revelation of truth.
