Athol Fugard's MASTER HAROLD… AND THE BOYS Plays Fugard Theatre, 3/4-30

Produced by Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre, Athol Fugard's masterpiece, "MASTER HAROLD"... AND THE BOYS, will open in the Fugard Studio Theatre on the 4th March 2013.
Set in the St. George's Park tea room in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on a dreary, wet afternoon in 1950, "MASTER HAROLD"... AND THE BOYS tells the story of three friends, one a 17 year old white boy and the other two the black servants he has grown up around, whose relationship is put to the test by societal and personal forces. The play devastatingly reveals how racial prejudice, especially legislated racial prejudice, insinuates itself into every social sphere of existence, until the very language of ordinary human discourse begins to reflect the policy that makes black men subservient to the power exercised by white. As with all of Athol Fugard's work, the brilliance of "MASTER HAROLD"... AND THE BOYS lies in that it deals not with political issues, but with individuals, and their struggles for life and happiness in a world that is set up to deny them these basic human rights.

"MASTER HAROLD"... AND THE BOYS will enjoy a limited engagement in the intimate Fugard Studio Theatre from 4 to 30 March 2013.

Bookings are now open and tickets, ranging from R130 - R150 per person can be bought through Computicket or by dialing the Fugard Theatre's box office on 021 461 4554.
