MASTER HAROLD AND THE BOYS

by Athol Fugard

Master Harold and the Boys jpgJune 8-24

Set in 1950 on a rainy day in a run-down South African tearoom, apartheid is the law of the land. Two black men, Willie and Sam, dance as they clean the floor, practicing for an upcoming ballroom dance competition. In walks Hally, a 17-year-old white boy, who Sam has helped with his homework since Hally was little. They get into a deep discussion about who is the most important social reformer in history. "Fugard creates a blistering fusion of the personal and the political." - The New York Times

REVIEWS
"One of those depth charge plays that has lasting relevance and can triumphantly survive any test of time. The story is simple, but the resonance that Fugard brings to it lets it reach beyond the narrative, to touch so many nerves connected to betrayal and guilt. An exhilarating play. It is a triumph of playmaking, and unforgettable." - New York Post
