Master Harold and the boys Tickets

The apartheid is revisited in Athol Fugard's modern classic Master Harold and the boys
'Master Harold’… and the boys 1950. Apartheid South Africa. St George's Park Tea Room, Port Elizabeth, 1950. On a long rainy afternoon, employees Sam and Willie practise their steps for the finals of the ballroom dancing championship. Hally arrives from school to hide out in his parents’ tea room. These two men have been unlikely best friends to Hally his whole life. But it is apartheid era South Africa: he’s Master Harold, and they are the boys. Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard’s semi-autobiographical and blistering masterwork explores the nature of friendship, and the ways people are capable of hurting even those they love. Roy Alexander Weise (Nine Night) directs Lucian Msamati (Amadeus) and Hammed Animashaun (Barber Shop Chronicles) as Sam and Willie.

    Brilliant! Thank you to all the boys and girls involved. You captured South African history on another important historical day ie SA wins rugby amidst much deeper historical and political issues. Thank you for portraying many facets including showing us Athol’s intelligence. Please keep on telling his story like you did today.

    Is this an example of Mans inhumanity to man - possibly.

    Brilliantly produced play. Strong acting on the whole. But unfortunately master Harold was a bit weaker and his accent grated as it just wasn’t right.
