Harry Groener - "The Train Driver" Play from October 27 to November 21, 2010

samedi 23 octobre 2010, par Webmaster

Tony Award nominees Harry Groener and Anthony Chisholm will co-star in Athol Fugard’s The Train Driver at the Long Wharf Theatre this fall.

Long Wharf artistic director Gordon Edelstein will stage the play, which is scheduled to run Oct. 27-Nov. 21 on the main stage. Fugard previously directed the world premiere of the play in February at the South African theatre named in his honor.

Here’s how Long Wharf bills the work : "Roelf Visagie (Groener) wanders the graveyards of Port Elizabeth, searching among the unnamed ones for the final, nondescript resting place of a young woman he unintentionally killed. When Roelf looks for answers, he encounters a mysterious gravedigger named Simon (Chisholm) who guides him towards tenuous and troubled understanding. Based on a real life incident, the play explores guilt in post-apartheid South Africa, continuing the theatre’s long and fruitful association with the master playwright."

Groener received Tony Award nominations for his work in Crazy for You, Cats and Oklahoma ! Chisholm earned a Tony nomination for August Wilson’s Radio Golf and has appeared in Gem of the Ocean, Two Trains Running and Jitney.

Advertisement Fugard’s plays include Blood Knot, Boesman and Lena, Sizwe Bansi is Dead, The Island, Master Harold and the Boys, My Children ! My Africa !, Exits and Entrances, Victory, Bootjie and the Oubaas and Visions and Dreams. Long Wharf presented the world premiere of his play Coming Home last season. Fugard’s last play, Have You Seen Us ?, premiered at Long Wharf in 2009.
