7:30 pm Master Harold...and the Boys
With the metallic clink of a coin in a jukebox and the scratch of a needle on a record, the character Willie utters the conclusive words to his friend, Sam, “Let’s dream.” And so they do. Caught up in a whirlwind of post-World War II traumas and the suffocating tensions of racism in 1950s apartheid South Africa, the three actors of this masterpiece by Athol Fugard bang and clash against their fluctuating society in this tale of hope and escapism. $30 (more)
