“Master Harold”…and the Boys
Dates of run: October 3 – October 28, 2012
Directed by: Jane Unger
Featuring: Sam Benedict, Bobby Bermea* and Garfield Wedderburn
In Fugard’s semi-autobiographical work, white 17-year-old Hally comes of age in his mother’s small, run down Port Elizabeth teashop during the height of apartheid. On a quiet, rainy afternoon, Willie and Sam, black waiters closer to the boy than his own father, practice for an upcoming ballroom dance competition. While Hally works on his lessons, the three friends uncover the cruel power of language by revealing dark secrets and speaking words that cannot be unsaid.
