Athol Fugard

Published by Samuel French Inc

3 Male 0 Female

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" ~ N.Y. Post

"Fugard creates a blistering fusion of the personal and the political" ~ N.Y. Times

"This revival brings out [the play's] considerable strengths" ~ N.Y. Daily News

"An exhilarating play. . . . It is a triumph of playmaking, and unforgettable" ~ N.Y. Post
