Truth in Translation is a play born out of the struggle for forgiveness and reconciliation that went on following the end of apartheid in South Africa. Apartheid is that thing where blacks were forced to attend separate schools, get crappy jobs and recognize that they could never be a part of the "superior" white man's world. Thank goodness that never happened here in the United States. Well, OK, there was that brief hiccup in time where we may have done something like that. But surely we're beyond all that racism and segregation now, right? I mean, just look at north and south Dallas. The premiere performances of Truth in Translation's U.S. tour will begin right here in Big D at SMU's Bob Hope Theatre. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with an additional 2 p.m. matinee Saturday. The play is free, but you must reserve a seat. For reservations call 214-768-ARTS.
Sept. 6-8, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 8, 2 p.m.
