Master Harold and the Boys

Written by Athol Fugard
Produced by the Shaw Festival
Directed by Philip Akin

Port Elizabeth, South Africa – 1950. In a tea-shop owned by his parents, Harold does homework while two black men rehearse ballroom dancing. Harold and the men, who have long 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 to inequality and injustice. Designed by Peter Hartwell and Lighting designed by Kevin Lamotte. Winner of two 2017 Dora Awards for Outstanding Performance – Male, André Sills and Outstanding Direction, Philip Akin.
