Master Harold and the Bo.

Fugard manages to not only create a convincng domestic drama, but situates it incredibly well into the political . and the boys honestly was the best.

Fugard manages to not only create a convincng domestic drama, but situates it incredibly well into the political milieu of the period in which he wrote. His symbolism though understated is nevertheless powerful, and compelling events such as the kite flying scene are rightfully well known, not only for their metaphysical importance but also for the simplicity of the human drama that they convey. It wasn't life-changing. But I can admit that it was very excellent, and enjoyable.

When Athol Fugard was a child, his mother managed the Jubilee Residential House and the St. George Tea Room . and the boys at the Yale Repertory Theater in March 1982. George Tea Room in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Meanwhile, Fugard's father was disabled, which kept him from working. He was also an alcoholic, going in and out of hospitals, and he held extremely racist opinions. Zakes Mokae played Sam, Danny Glover played Willie, and Zeljko Ivanek was Hally. A few months later, the play moved to the Lyceum Theater on Broadway.

The role that won Zakes Mokae a Tony Award brought Danny Glover back to the New York stage for the Roundabout Theatre's revival of this searing coming of age story, considered by many to be Fugard's masterpiece. A white teen who has grown up in the affectionate company of the two black waiters who work in his mother's tea room in Port Elizabeth learns that his viciously racist alcoholic father is on his way home from the hospital. An ensuing rage unwittingly triggers his inevitable passage into the culture of hatred fostered by apartheid.

"One of those depth charge plays [that] has lasting relevance [and] can triumphantly survive any test of time...The story is simple, but the resonance that Fugard brings to it lets it reach beyond the narrative, to touch so many nerves connected to betrayal and guilt. An exhilarating play...It is a triumph of playmaking, and unforgettable."-New York Post

"Fugard creates a blistering fusion of the personal and the political."-The New York Times

"This revival brings out [the play's] considerable strengths."-New York Daily News

I really enjoyed this short play- there's so much packed into so little. Keep in mind this was a text taught to my students, so I'm definitely reviewing it from the perspective of an English teacher:

- Themes aplenty- race, father figures, intellect, age, art...
- And the symbolism- kites, ballroom dancing, comic books...
- Characters- so well-developed for a play that spans the course of just one afternoon
- The dialogue is so rich and powerful- the climax of the play is incredibly moving and insanely well-written
- Much can be done with historical and social context

Definitely a good read- would be a great airplane read- short, but deep (unless you're sitting next to a noisy child or a loud snorer).

I got this play for my Theater class. I loved it, it focuses on a scene of a young white boy and his black friends/servants. It takes place in South Africa 1950. Theme being racism, it shows a key example of how quickly one can turn. This was an excellent play, empathizing with either 1 or all 3 of the characters. It's short and a great read, I highly suggest this book.

great play written brilliantly. Very important terms of the current socioeconomic situation in the world. It's a great tool for educational use. The play is easy to read but is very profound and complex at the same time.
