Product Details

Praise

“One of Fugard’s most universal works of theatre.  It operates on two levels:  as the story of a loving but lacerating relationship between a black man and a white boy; and . . . as a powerful political statement about apartheid.”  —Mel Gussow, New Yorker

“The greatest active playwright in the English-speaking world.” —Time

“In ‘Master Harold’ . . . and the boys the author has journeyed so deep into the psychosis of racism that all national boundaries quickly fall away, that no one is left unimplicated by his vision. . . . Mr. Fugard has forced us to face point-blank, our capacity for hate . . . but we’re also left with the exultant hope that we may yet practice compassion without stumbling. . . .  The choice, of course, is ours.  Mr. Fugard’s wrenching play, which insists that we make it, is beyond beauty.”—Frank Rich, The New York Times ”An exhilarating play . . . a triumph of playmaking, and unforgettable!” —New York Post
