Oct 22: Master Harold and the Boys

October 22, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The autobiographical story of 17-year-old Harold, nicknamed Hally (James Daly), the son of the restaurant’s owners, and his unusual friendship with the family’s two servants, Sam (André Sills) and Willie (Allan Louis).

Port Elizabeth, South Africa – 1950.  In a tea shop owned by his parents, Harold does homework while two black men rehearse ballroom dancing.  Hally and the men, who worked for his family, recall fond memories of times spent together as the young boy escaped his family life.  But when news comes that the boy’s father is returning home, the personal becomes political.  First produced in 1982, the play was initially banned in South Africa and has since become an enduring, modern classic that continues to speak inequality and injustice.

 

Please note this Obsidian Theatre Company production is recommended for Teens Ages 13+ due to Content & Controversial issues.
