News   PHOTO CALL: Signature Theatre Company's Blood Knot, Starring Colman Domingo and Scott Shepherd
 
Blood Knot, written and directed by Athol Fugard, launched the Signature Theatre Company's new home, The Pershing Square Signature Center on West 42nd Street. Performances began Jan. 31, kicking off the company's 2012 "Residency One" season devoted to the works of the South African dramatist.

The play stars Tony Award nominee Colman Domingo as Zachariah and Obie Award winner Scott Shepherd as Morris.

Here's how the drama, which was nominated as Best Play for its 1985 Broadway run, is billed by Off-Broadway's Signature: "Between patchwork walls in a one-room shack, two biracial South African brothers grapple with crippling poverty and lonely isolation. Morris, the punctilious force that keeps their room tidy, is light-skinned enough to pass for white, but dark-skinned Zach feels imprisoned by his job at a whites-only park. When they find themselves on some dangerous new ground, the brothers must come face to face with the blood knot between them. Athol Fugard's revolutionary breakthrough play is a searing indictment of apartheid and one of his most celebrated works."

Here's a look at the production:
