Watch a preview of the show.
Featuring Dame Janet Suzman, one of the world's most revered actresses of stage and screen (famed for her work with the Royal Shakespeare Company, a two-time Olivier Award nominee, and an Academy Award nominee for Nicholas and Alexandra), Solomon and Marion is the story of two injured souls searching for redemption in the fragile, post-apartheid South Africa. Marion has watched her life drain away. Children and husband gone, she ekes out an existence in a country utterly transformed. But it's the only home she has. As the new South Africa prepares for the World Cup finals, old divisions and suspicions seem as deep as ever, and the intruder she has been expecting, dreading, and needing arrives.
