Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

The program was very moving. Not as much humor as I've heard from him before, very intense.
This is the first time I've been in A.C.T. since it was refurbished - seats were very comfortable, sight line is great, and the knee space is wonderful!!!
Quotes & Highlights
“A beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation, and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place” —San Francisco Chronicle
In playwright Brian Copeland’s own words:
“In 1972, the National Committee against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, California a racist bastion of white supremacy. It was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. CBS News and Newsweek magazine covered the story. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings—and then we moved to town.”
