About the event
South African playwright Athol Fugard confronts the tragedy of Apartheid in this compelling drama. In the face of increasing racial tension, teacher Mr. M plans to prove that through education and working together, that a Black and White Afrikaner can demonstrate that Apartheid is madness. The three soon find that their classroom is not immune from the conflict which accompanies overturning the old order and the challenge of finding your voice in the face of so much turmoil around you.
Feat: Jelani Ptcher, Brianna Joy Ford, and Godfrey Simmons Jr.
