Palm Beach Dramaworks Presents MASTER HAROLD...and the boys
(Artwork By Fraver)
West Palm Beach's only resident professional theatre, Palm Beach Dramaworks, continues its 12th Anniversary season with Athol Fugard's play "MASTER HAROLD"...and the boys on Friday, April 6th (8PM) at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre (201 Clematis Street). Special priced preview performances are slated for April 4th & 5th with regularly scheduled curtain times through April 29th.
Based on Anthol Fugard's early life in South Africa, "MASTER HAROLD"...and the boys tells the story of Willie and Sam, two black waiters who work in the St. George's Park Tea Room, and Hally, the tea room owner's son. Hally has known Willie and Sam all his life, and is very fond of them both; however, on one rainy day in 1950 their wide-ranging discussions illustrate all that unites us and the gulf that still divides us. Considered to be one of Fugard's greatest pieces, '"Master Harold"…and the boys" tells the universal story of human relationships that are put to the test by societal and personal forces.
Producing Artistic Director, William Hayes will direct the production featuring Paul Bodie, Summer Hill Seven, and Jared McGuire. The play will feature scenery designed by Michael Amico, costumes designed by Erin Amico, lights designed by Ron Burns and sound designed by Rich Szczublewski.
Athol Fugard, South African playwright, actor, and director, dedicated much of his talent to the analysis and commentary on apartheid. His plays were often controversial and many were initially banned from being produced in his homeland. His many political and racially driven plays include No-Good Friday, The Blood Knot, Sizwe Bansi Is Dead, and My Children! My Africa! Most recently, Fugard received a Special 2011 Tony Award® for Lifetime Achievement.
The 12th anniversary season will conclude with "Proof" by David Auburn (May 25 – June 17).
