Signature Theatre opens MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA! by Athol Fugard and directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson tonight, May 24. The production began previews May 1 and runs through June 10, 2012 in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Company's new home, The Pershing Square Signature Center. Production footage has just been releases and BroadwayWorld brings you a first look below!

The cast includes Allie Gallerani (Off-Broadway debut) as Isabel, James A. Williams (Jitney) as Mr. M, and Stephen Tyrone Williams (Burning) as Thami. Ten-time Grammy Award-winner Bobby McFerrin provides music for the production.

In a classroom in a small Eastern Cape Karoo town in South Africa in 1984, Mr. M, an idealistic teacher, seeks to provide a future for his gifted student Thami by forming a debate team with Isabel, a spirited student from the locAl White school. But outside the classroom Mr. M's hopes for Thami are challenged by their generational divide and increasing political unrest.

Written in 1989 shortly before the end of apartheid, MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA! presents an honest and unflinching portrait of a country on the brink of revolution, and is a testament to the power and potential of youth, hope, and ideas.
