Master Harold and the Boys

May 20 – June 6, 2021

by Athol Fugard

A searing coming-of-age story during the apartheid era of South Africa, considered by many to be Fugard’s masterpiece. A white teen who has grown up in the affectionate company of the two black waiters who work in his mother’s tea room in Port Elizabeth learns that his viciously racist, alcoholic father is on his way home from the hospital. An ensuing rage unwittingly triggers his inevitable passage into the culture of hatred fostered by apartheid.

At this time all reservations are going through the Box Office due to social distancing/limited seating and not being sold online.
