"Master Harold"... and the boys
By Athol Fugard
Directed by David O'Connor
September 15 - October 15, 2006
Winner of both the Drama Desk and Critics' Circle Awards for Best Play, "Master Harold"... and the boys is widely considered to be Athol Fugard's masterpiece. A coming of age story set in 1950s South Africa, "Master Harold"... is a powerful examination of the impact of apartheid on the relationship between Hally, a young white man, and Sam, the black man who has been his lifelong friend. Searing, haunting, often funny, and ultimately redemptive, "Master Harold"... is as timely as ever, a triumph of conscience over injustice.
"Lantern Theater Company is giving the play the taut, intense and often funny revival it deserves." –The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Athol Fugard's plays...have lost no relevance or power, as superbly illustrated by Lantern Theater Company's production." –Philadelphia City Paper
"A profoundly moving theater experience." –Philadelphia Weekly
