MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA! NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: May 1, 2012
Did He Like It?
In a classroom in a small Eastern Cape Karoo town in South Africa in 1984, Mr. M, an idealistic teacher, seeks to provide a future for his gifted student Thami by forming a debate team with Isabel, a spirited student from the local white school. But outside the classroom Mr. M's hopes for Thami are challenged by their generational divide and increasing political unrest. 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.
Caught in the Prison That Is Their Country

"Hope has broken loose in Athol Fugard’s “My Children! My Africa!,” and those eager to embrace it had best beware. In the Signature Theater Company’s stirring revival of Mr. Fugard’s 1989 tale of friendship in the twilight of apartheid, a schoolmaster in a small South African township describes hope as “a dangerous animal,” one he usually keeps penned up, along with brutes like anger and despair."
