"Master Harold"... and the Boys

By Athol Fugard
Directed by Lane Savadove

Presented in rotating repertory with "Egoli", this play explores colonialism and privilege during South Africa's apartheid.

This famed classic anti-apartheid play was initially banned in South Africa before being produced by Yale Rep in 1982 and later on Broadway. "Master Harold" played a significant role in awakening global consciousness about apartheid's atrocities and helped to lead to the system's eventual downfall. This semi-autobiographical piece depicts how societal racism can pass down to the individual despite our best intentions, and presents the challenges and hopes for true change.
