The Syringa Tree

The Syringa Tree on Where Rockies

Rosebud Theatre presents The Syringa Tree. A middle-aged woman longs to rest her back against the syringa tree in her childhood home. She recollects an exhilarating story of the abiding love between two families – one black, one white – and the two children that were born into their shared household in early 1960's South Africa. With humour and heart, the story follows their destines through four generations from early apartheid to the present-day free South Africa. An inspiring story of two families separated by racism but connected by love.

The Syringa Tree plays on Rosebud’s intimate blackbox Studio Stage. Doors open 30 minutes prior to show-time and no admission will be allowed once the performance starts. Find tickets, here.
