By Athol Fugard
Directed by Melanie Dreyer-Lude
The great South African playwright Athol Fugard confronts the tragedy of apartheid in this compelling tale set in a segregated township in 1984. In the face of increasing racial tension, a humble and humane black teacher attempts to persuade his best (and most charismatic) student that education, not violence, is the answer to South Africa’s problems. Fugard’s play resonates deeply with the increasing influence of the Black Lives Matter movement challenging the old guard of the Civil Rights movement and with ongoing debates over racial inequality in American public schools.
