'Master Harold and the Boys'

When one is raised in an environment of racism and prejudice, those forms of bigotry—whether on the giving or receiving end—are sadly absorbed as normal. Athol Fugard’s award-winning play Master Harold and the Boys takes an intimate look at such a situation. In apartheid-era South Africa, young Hally has grown up with two black servants, Sam and Willie, who throughout his life have supplied him with camaraderie, paternal support and intellectual stimulation. When Hally learns of the return of his vicious, abusive father, he unleashes an emotional storm upon his two friends, ultimately undermining years of friendship and reducing their relationship to one of inferiority. Don’t miss what The New York Times has said “wields the power to astonish.”
Thursdays-Sundays, 2 & 8 p.m. Starts: July 2. Continues through July 30, 2011
