“Promise” by Damon Galgut
Haunted by an unmet promise, the Swart family loses touch after the death of their matriarch. Adrift,
the lives of the three siblings move separately through the uncharted waters of South Africa. Reunited
by four funerals over three decades, the dwindling family reflects the atmosphere of its country—one of resentment, renewal, and, ultimately, hope.
In person in the Oak Room for those who are vaccinated and comfortable.
