Citizens of South Africa are confronting a painful past of the apartheid era through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. STRANGE COURTESIES explores the potential restorative power of truth telling, the significance of sympathetic witnesses, and the tasks of both perpetrators and bystanders in the TRC process. Can dignity be restored to victims and their families while offering a basis for individual healing, and promoting the reconciliation of a divided society?

The cast of STRANGE COURTESIES includes Tshiwela Maangani* as “Nomusa Kwanzi,” Biko Eisen-Martin* as “Robert Seybold,” Jamey Williams as “Jonny Emanuel Kwanzi,” Marjorie Johnson* as “Zenzile Kwanzi,” Adam Green as “Zachariah Kwanzi,” and Robert Sicular* as “Howard Arthur Prinzloo.”

In addition to Mr. Callender, the creative team includes Allison F. Rich* (Stage Manager), Derrick Scocchera (Video Design and Editing), Madeline Berger (Costume Design), IMRSV Sound (Sound Design), Devin Parker Sullivan (Choreographer) and Leticia Lashell Ridley (Dramaturg).

*Member of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers.
