Fleur Du Cap Award (2011)

This delicate and beautifully wrought South African drama heralds another Australian debut of exceptional new international writing. Much loved television and stage favourite Gillian Jones, well-known for her roles in Love My Way, Packed to the Rafters, and The Slap, joins Pacharo Mzembe in this intimate two hander, directed by Pamela Rabe.

Solomon and Marion is the story of two injured souls searching for redemption in the fragile, post-apartheid South Africa. Marion has watched her life drain away. Children and husband gone, she ekes out an existence in a country utterly transformed. But it’s the only home she has. As the new South Africa prepares for the World Cup finals, old divisions and suspicions seem as deep as ever, and the intruder she has been expecting, dreading and needing, arrives. Can true reconciliation turn darkness into hope?
