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.

Balcony seats are really miserable, so uncomfortable and tight and no space for legs. Mezzanine doesn't look a lot better. The play was well done, and acting good. But the play is really far too long, not as witty as I remember from reading it decades ago, and I would not recommend it.

Maybe it was because both my wife & I were tired, but the play was very slow moving and both of us started to nod off near end of 1st half. So we didn't stay for 2nd. Maybe it was better. The seats were good and we love the old theatre
