"Fugard's toughest and most moving political play. One of the theatre's most affecting dissections of social upheaval." --Linda Winer, New York Newsday
Generational conflict over the most effective means for ending apartheid in South Africa leads to an explosive confrontation between a gifted but impatient black township youth and his devoted but "old-fashioned" black teacher in this deeply felt and richly imagined drama first presented in the United States in 1989 by the New York Theatre Workshop. The unexpected involvement of a young white woman who befriends and learns from both men strips away the political trappings to reveal the human trauma at the heart of South Africa's ongoing tragedy.
My Children! My Africa! is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
