The play was developed in the Bullitt Cabaret space at Seattle's A Contemporary Theatre in 1999 before going on to successful runs in New York and London. Gin Hammond and Eva Kaminsky will alternate in the one-woman drama which spans four generations of South Africa from apartheid to freedom through the stories of two families.
Larry Moss, who directed the original ACT run and Off-Broadway staging of the play, returns to helm the new Seattle run at ACT's Falls Theatre.
The design team for The Syringa Tree features Kenneth Foy (set), Steven B. Mannshardt (lighting) and Tony Suraci (sound).
