Master Harold ... and the boys

Master Harold’… And The Boys

National Theatre - Lyttelton Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard’s semi-autobiographical and blistering masterwork explores the nature of friendship, and the ways people are capable of hurting even those they love.

‘Master Harold’… And The Boys is booking until 16 December 2019 at the National Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

1950. Apartheid South Africa.

St George’s Park Tea Room, Port Elizabeth, 1950. On a long rainy afternoon, employees Sam and Willie practise their steps for the finals of the ballroom dancing championship.

Hally arrives from school to hide out in his parents’ tea room. These two men have been unlikely best friends to Hally his whole life. But it is apartheid era South Africa: he’s Master Harold, and they are the boys.

WHO’S IN IT? ‘Master Harold’… And The Boys CAST

The cast of ‘Master Harold… and the boys’ stars Anson Boon as Hally, Lucian Msamati as Sam and Hammed Animashaun as Willie.
