Winner of the 2001 Obie Award for Best Play, The Syringa Tree is a personal story of an abiding love between two families - one black, one white - and the two children that are born into their shared household in early 1960s South Africa. With both humor and palpable fear, six-year-old Elizabeth Grace tries to make sense of the chaos, magic and darkness of Africa. At first seen through the eyes of a child, the story of these families’ destinies spans four generations, from early apartheid to the present-day free South Africa.
