"Storytelling is a powerful medium for communication. Especially in situations where the message is too painful, too embarrassing, too secret to speak it. Storytelling can then become a journey to the truth. I commend their commitment and courage." - Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In 1974, in Johannesburg, a teacher asked two rival schoolboys to tell one another a story. Three decades later Murray Nossel, an Academy-Award(R) nominated filmmaker, and Paul Browde, a psychiatrist, meet by chance in New York and set out to transform the world through storytelling. "And so Murray and I tell our story together. How I encouraged him to tell a story at age 12, how I bullied him, and later apologized, how he encouraged me to tell my own story, and how we go around performing this friendship to audiences. What is Two Men Talking? It is about friendship. It is about listening. It is about apology and forgiveness and hatred and love. It is about fear and death and courage and life." Paul Browde. With startling honesty Paul and Murray talk of growing up white, middle class and privileged under apartheid. Moving, emotional, funny and life-affirming, this is a unique and powerful piece of theatre.Performers Paul Browde, Murray Nossel.
