In a small South African tea shop in 1950, two black men and a white boy joke and dance together, defying the brutalities of apartheid through their joyous love. But festering issues of family, race, and power are not so easy to ignore, and a single phone call can trigger catastrophe. Winner of the Drama Desk and London Evening Standard Awards for Best Play, “Master Harold”... and the boys reveals the profound personal consequences of oppression.


Critics' Pick! "A sterling production! A powerfully moving indictment of past apartheid and present racism."
- The New York Times

"Emotionally devastating. To see it represents a privilege not to be missed."
- The Hollywood Reporter

"A high point of the season! Transporting, transfixing and transformative, all at once."
- Deadline
