Otterbein Summer Theatre Presents: "Master Harold" ... and the Boys

By Athol Fugard

Directed by Melissa Lusher


June 27-30 (Two performances June 28 – 2:00pm and 8:00pm) 


Fritsche Theatre at Cowan Hall
30 S. Grove St., Westerville 

Set in 1950’s South Africa, this searing coming-of-age story is considered Fugard’s masterpiece. A white teen who has grown up in the affectionate company of the two black waiters who work in his mother’s tearoom in Port Elizabeth learns that his viciously racist, alcoholic father is on his way home from the hospital. His ensuing rage unwittingly triggers his inevitable passage into the culture of hatred fostered by apartheid.
