The Suit (Le Costume) archiveIn the dusty heat of a 1950s South African township, a young worker returns home to find his wife in bed with her lover. The lover escapes, leaving behind his suit. The only revenge the husband takes is to instruct his wife to treat the suit as an honoured guest. But how long can she endure this cruel and pitiless sentence? World-renowned directors Peter Brook and Marie-H?l?ne Estienne team up with a company of international actors, singers and musicians to recreate Can Themba's hauntingly beautiful fable.
