The Suit: A Storybook Introduction

The Suit will be at Ann Arbor’s Power Center on February 19-22, 2014. The play, directed by the renowned Peter Brook, is adapted from South African writer Can Themba’s witty, unsettling short story of the same name.

Can Themba was a short story writer and journalist, writing investigative pieces for Drum Magazine in addition to fiction in the 1950s and sixties. Peter Brook’s 71-year career spanned the Royal Shakespeare Company, London’s West End, Paris’s Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, and countless other companies and has irrevocably changed contemporary theater.

Brooklyn-based illustrator Nathan Gelgud has created a “storybook” introduction to The Suit.
