Athol Fugard’s tale of friendship and racial tension. A schoolmaster in a small South African township describes hope as “a dangerous animal.” Can he combine the talents of a black male student with a white female student on an educational journey in the twilight of apartheid? Set in 1985 South Africa, during a period of intense and often violent anti-Apartheid protests and boycotts, My Children! My Africa! follows the friendship of two teenagers. Thami, a gifted and independent black student, and Isabel, a white prep school student, participate in a rare interracial debate at Thami's school. Against the backdrop of an education system in crisis, Fugard's hopeful, seasoned teacher Mr. M struggles to lift his students above the strife and violence that is boiling in their black township. My Children! My Africa! premiered at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1989 and has been performed since then worldwide.
