MASTER HAROLD…and the boys is a famous play by Athol Fugard. Set in a tea shop in 1950 during the Apartheid era in South Africa, the powerful drama tells about the friendship between a white boy and two black waiters. Based on a true event in the playwright’s life, the story reveals the reach of racial hatred and a vision for a more harmonious word—a vision embodied by Nelson Mandela himself—the “Man of Magnitude” whose life we honor and celebrate today.
