The Suit description

The ultimate betrayal. The cruellest revenge.

Following huge critical acclaim for the world premiere in Paris, directors Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne bring a company of international actors, singers and musicians to London to recreate Can Themba's hauntingly beautiful short story.

In the dusty heat of a 1950s South African township, a young worker returns home to find his wife in bed with her lover. The lover escapes, leaving behind his suit. In revenge, the husband instructs his wife to treat the suit as an honoured guest. But how long can she endure this cruel and pitiless punishment?
