Signature Theatre has announced a 1-week extension for its current production of Athol Fugard's Boesman and Lena, which began previews at Pershing Square Signature Center's Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre on February 5, 2019, and officially opened on February 25. The limited engagement will now run through to March 24, 2019 (instead of March 17). Synopsis: "In Boesman and Lena, the human need for kindness, hope and compassion is on display in the struggles of abusive Boesman and his long-suffering wife Lena, who encounter a stranger while wandering the South African wastelands."
There’s a reason that Athol Fugard’s 1969 award-winning play Boesman and Lena was on the reading list of every Modern Drama class in the country by the mid 1970’s. Well, maybe not in the deep South. It’s a brilliant play about two people living in South Africa at that time and how their lives were affected by apartheid.
