Athol Fugard’s “Blood Knot” is a parable of two brothers who share a one-room shack near Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Equally important today as it was at the time of its 1961 premiere, the play is a poignant, piercing metaphor for racial tension, powerfully acted by James A. Williams and Stephen Yoakam.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at pillsburyhousetheatre.org or by calling the box office.

Matilda
April 28 – June 23
See website for times:

Children’s Theatre Company
2400 3rd Ave. S., Mpls. 55404
Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this is the story of Matilda. Her dreadful parents can’t stand her. Her headmistress is a horrible, nasty, name-calling, life-sucking tyrant who puts kids in cupboards with nails and broken glass. (And you thought you had it bad.) This captivating kid-power romp revels in the anarchy of childhood. Celebrating the tenacity of the small, Matilda proves that the strength to be yourself (along with a little telekinetic power) will prevail at the end of the day.
