Athol Fugard’s semi-autobiographical play about the relationship between Apartheid and ballroom dancing steps into the National Theatre as part of the latest season. Exploring the nature of friendship in complicated political climates, ‘Master Harold... and the boys’ also asks how people can be capable to hurt those they love.
The cast of ‘Master Harold... and the boys’ stars Anson Boon as Hally, Lucian Msamati as Sam and Hammed Animashaun as Willie.
Set in 1950s Apartheid-era South Africa at a tea room, employees Sam and Willy rehearse for the finals of their ballroom dancing championship that’s coming up. When ‘Master Harold’, a young boy named Hally arrives home from school, the trio engage in conversation that’s seemingly abnormal to live under Apartheid. Exploring unexpected friendships made during an era of contentious politics, Master Harold... and the boys tackles politics and society in South Africa.
Please note: As part of depicting the experience of 1950s apartheid South Africa, at times characters in the play use language which is racially offensive.
