In Sorrows & Rejoices
, an exiled poet returns to South Africa to die. There, the two women who loved him one white, one black share memories, regrets, and feelings. Most of all, however, they share hope for the future of their country. It's a post-apartheid tale (presented by Ensemble Theatre and making its Cleveland premiere tonight) that's a bit heavy on symbolism at times. But the piece, penned by South African playwright Athol Fugard, is also lyrical and moving.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Feb. 11. Continues through Feb. 26
