7:30 pm Master Harold...and the Boys

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)
