My Children, My Africa

Written by Athol Fugard
Directed by Cecil O’Neal
May 3 – June 10, 2007


Conflict over the most effective means for ending apartheid in South Africa leads to an explosive generational 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. 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 recent history.
