Master Harold...and the boysBy Athol FugardDirected by Timothy NearSTARTS JUNE 17
An ordinary rainy afternoon in 1950’s South Africa turns into a profound and lifechanging experience for a white teenager and his family’s two black servants. At once a coming of age drama and a scathing indictment of inequality, this modern masterpiece by Athol Fugard (Blood Knot, My Children! My Africa!) continues to speak to the world’s many racial injustices as well as its hopes for reconciliation.
Featuring Bay Area favorite L. Peter Callender
“There may be two or three living playwrights in the world who can write as well as Atho l Fugard, but I’m not sure that any of them has written a recent play that can match ‘Master Harold’ ... and the boys.” ~ The New York Times
Originate + Generate shifts our focus from discovery to full-on development, including commissions, workshops, readings, and full productions of new plays like Little Erik. Every year, theatre artists will be selected and given the opportunity of creating new work via a process of their own devising. They will be given the financial help, resources and space to create work specifically for Aurora’s stages. In line with Aurora’s mission, special emphasis will be given to local theatre artists.
