Theater

Review, The Suit

The Suit is essentially about a man who cannot move past his anger toward his wife and, as a result, destroys both his wife and himself. I found it long even at 70 minutes, but I enjoyed the evocation of life in a black slum in South Africa in the 50s. In fact, it made me want to read a history of South Africa to understand why the white people decided to bulldoze this community and send everyone so far away from town they would not be able to work in Johannesburg any more. Any recommendations?

In other words, I continue to be in a very good mood and am SO looking forward to seeing my friends in Seattle! Just four days to go!
