“Fugard’s brilliant characterizations make this play a fascinating excursion into the politics of South Africa.” – Chicago Reader.
In this three-character thriller set in segregated South Africa, a humane black teacher tries to convince a favorite student that education, not violence, is the answer to the nation’s problems. Written in 1989 shortly before the end of apartheid, My Children! My Africa! presents an honest and unflinching portrait of a country on the brink of revolution, and is a testament to the power and potential of youth, hope, and ideas.
