    The Syringa Tree is a memory play with roots in the author’s own life growing up during the turbulent years of South African Apartheid. With Apartheid as the backdrop, the story spans four generations of the deep and abiding love between two families, one black, one white, and the two children that are born into their shared household : One white and free; one black and existing illegally. Although the word Apartheid is never used in the play, the audience witnesses the devastating effects though the unfiltered eyes of a child Elizabeth. Elizabeth intuitively tries to make sense of the chaos, magic, darkness and beauty of South Africa. Elizabeth narrates as 23 storytellers step in to recreate the sounds, the rhythms, and the people of South Africa. This production strives to preserve the integrity of the rich tradition of African storytelling. Thus, the actors use no props. The set is minimal. There are no costume changes. Changes in time and location are indicated by lights. And the audience- the audience experiences theater through the power of imagination. *Sensitive issues*
